Prof. Nageb Toma Bato, the Vice Rector for Scientific Affairs and Higher Education, delivered a speech and spoke about the need for the students and teachers of our university. He said: “The idea of providing the microscopes is resulted from an attempt of the University Rector’s effort. When he got the positions of the Rector, he visited all the technical colleges and institutes and visited the laboratories and halls. When we visited the Soran Technical Institute this idea was born. We saw that all students gathered around a single old microscope. During their visit, we saw the same picture again in the laboratory, and then there was a request from the Technical Institute to provide a microscope.
Therefore, we decided to implement a project to improve both classrooms and laboratories and to provide equipment, we formed an expert committee of the university teachers to discuss and determine the good quality that meet the needs of students and teachers. The committee in collaboration with the Department of the Imports and Laboratories suggested that several types and models of microscope, we chose a kind of Italian which is of great quality and we provided it.
