About us

AASTMT administration has realized the importance of educational innovation and development, since the early days of its establishment in 1972. In 1975, AASTMT adopted the Credit-Hour System in many of its educational programs.


Since its establishment, the AASTMT started to develop its teaching programs according to two basic principles. First, that the student body, staff members and administrators are the main driving force of the educational process and its source of creativity and innovation. Second, that the educational activities should challenge students’ intellectual abilities and stimulate discussion and new ideas, whether these educational activities are carried out in university lecture rooms, laboratories or workshops.
