Student Testimonial: “This is my first time
to visit Effat University and also my first time to enroll in a program. This
program provided me with many beneficial courses but
actually a few of them are only found here - such as Cryptography, Game Design
and Energy Engineering. Some of us will choose our future
careers depending on what we were taught in these courses. Our experiences were
really amazing and we really enjoyed being here at Effat
University” – Menna Mustafa, STEAM Innovation
