Tripoli, 17 April 2014:
alu College of Science and Arts, a branch of the University of Benghazi, is relocating courses . . .[restrict]and its administration to other buildings in the oasis town while a six-month programme of maintenance and refurbishment takes place at the campus.
“A number of departments are undergoing maintenance so, for the time being, the studies are taking place elsewhere,” the head of college’s administrative and financial department, Jibreel Abdulgader Al-Nuwaiji, told the Libya Herald.
“Some of students are still studying in the college such as those in the Economy and Engineering departments. But others are such as those the Arabic, Psychology and Social Studies departments are using the local elementary school. Chemistry, Biology and English language departments are currently at the Higher Vocational Institute,” explained Al-Nuwaiji.
The college has approximately 2,000 regular students, of which 700 are at the engineering department alone.
“The maintenance operation is to end in six month’s time,” explained Al-Nuwaiji, adding that a contract had been signed in February and that work should have begun straightway, but it is only just now happened.
