Somaliland University of Technology (SUTECH) was initially started in the year 2000 as Hargeisa College of Applied Arts and Technology (Hargeisa CAAT). After eight years of successful operations, it became necessary to capitalize the success story of the College by transforming it to a full university in order to meet the new challenges that are imposed themselves in the socio-economic context of Somaliland.



While Hargeisa College will remain as a centre of excellence for vocational training SUTECH shall provide an accessible and flexible study route to meet your career goals. SUTECH’s lecturing staff are all appropriately qualified with considerable teaching experience.

SUTECH academic acclaim is built on curricula that provide top qualifications for careers. It provides high quality education that meets the evolving socio-economic development needs of our country. Our educational programs are skill-based and supported by facilities equipped with state-of-the-art technology.


SUTECH’s success is reflected in the commitment of its faculty, and the achievements of its students. We invite you to join us.




Hargeisa College of Applied Arts and Technology (Hargeisa CAAT)

At the turn of the century, the situation in Somaliland was desperate. Prolonged civil war and instability had made social and HargeisaCAATeconomic recovery painfully slow. The absence of education was contributing to the vicious circle of unemployment, poverty and violence. The Hargeisa College of Applied Arts and Technology (CAAT) was founded in response to this catastrophic situation as a non-profit institution. There were no functioning technical schools in the country and the CAAT was the only institution of higher education in Somaliland. It was focused on making education accessible to a war ravaged youth and to reduce poverty by increasing participation of College graduates in the economic development of Somaliland.
