At GUST, you’ll find a state-of-the-art campus facility which is seemingly combined with a grounded context in the country’s culture. This combination is rooted in the hustle and bustle of the students, the partnerships born between faculty members, the self-expression flowing from the student clubs, and the discussions ensued in the classroom.
A Solid Foundation
GUST houses an honest foundation of the pursuit of educational advancement. In the mid-1990s, a group of distinguished Kuwaiti academicians and businessmen realized the vital importance of establishing a modern university in Kuwait equal, in quality, to other prestigious universities abroad. This University was to serve the ever-increasing educational demands of the local society and the Gulf region. A strategic partnership was established with the University of Missouri at St. Louis (UMSL), and with that, the Gulf University for Science and Technology (GUST) was born.
GUST faculty is comprised of members from esteemed national academies who are considered experts in many disciplines. Our faculty is a special blend which brings both a local and international touch to the University. One matter, that is not taken lightly, is access to faculty. After all, students need time with their professors, time to learn, time to ask, and time to be inspired; and so the faculty devotes a great deal of time to students, whether during classes or office hours.
Because GUST is one of the largest universities in the country, there is much activity among the students. Many clubs are formed, and many activities are hosted. This atmosphere breeds something in students that they will need in the future: the skill and know-how to work with others. With the myriad of activities, students have the opportunity to exercise their social and organizational skills, and, most importantly, their leadership skills. GUST continuously researches and pinpoints different programs worldwide where its students can participate to further enhance their GUST experience and encourage both intellectual and practical pursuits. After all, a university should not only be a place of learning and education but a place where they have fun, make friends, and get involved.
