It has developed a number of evaluation and accreditation systems of evaluation in the teaching and examinations fields and the efficiency evaluation of the employees.

We are devoted to help our students to achieve their educational ambitions. Our administration, academic and administrative staffs are devoting every effort to provide quality education to our students.
Your interest and performance will help point you in a general direction of a career path. Your aptitude is uncovered by more than just a few tests. Often it's shown in your skill and level of participation in various classes. Education helps you become a more well-rounded individual by exposing you to different ideas and learning how to apply them at least in a limited way. For the most part, education helps you be a generalist in many areas, and a specialist if you study in a particular area of interest. Without a broad education, you might have a very limited life where for most things brought to your attention, your response could very well be, "I don't know anything about that." Opportunities in life will come your way much more readily if you at least have sufficient interest in an issue, concept, technology, activity or event to know something about it. One result of a good education is the ability to define a problem and Mashreq University formulate a solution. You'll be faced with a multitude of decisions and problems in your life, and a good education will arm you with a range of tools for finding solutions. Many textbooks provide examples based in everyday life where concepts and problem solving skills can be applied to help us make decisions and draw conclusions. If we aren't armed with the ability to problem solve, then we must rely on others to do so. Solving problems ourselves helps make us stronger individuals, whereas relying on others simply makes us a dependent. Participation in higher education shows a "can do" attitude - something that is very important for employment in the "professional" sector. It's usually not especially challenging to make it through high school, but those who position themselves for college or the university, while in high school, and then press on with bettering themselves through higher education, are usually individuals who have confidence in themselves and are achievement oriented. A solid education with favorable results in terms of performance is a way of "getting your ticket punched." In other words, some employers won't consider candidates unless they have a certain level of education or a specific course of study. Other employers won't consider candidates unless they have an acceptable level of performance in their school work. So, you can see that employers often look at education as a type of "proving ground" for their prospective employees. The bottom line is that it is extremely important that everybody sees the benefit of obtaining a higher education. Not just in anything - it has to be in a field that is in demand. Having the higher education is only the starting point because to stay ahead education must be an ongoing process.
