thirty acres were immediately selected to establish Horus campus.
The university includes 6 Faculties: Dentistry, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, Nursing, Engineering, and Business Administration. The first construction phase has already started in the buildings of Nursing, Engineering, and Business Administration Faculties. The Academic year 2016-2017 witnessed the launching of study in the Faculties of Dentistry, and Pharmacy, later in the Faculty of Physical Therapy.
