Partnering with the Kingdom of Morocco, TIEC was responsible for the complete design of all programmatic, organizational, and operational aspects of this new private, Moroccan university utilizing the American university model. More than 80 faculty from Texas universities and elsewhere worked with approximately 150 Moroccan experts to develop the academic programs, design the information and communications technology systems, and establish the university’s administrative structure. Initial policies and procedures for admitting and counseling students, hiring faculty and staff, and managing all university operations were also developed. More than 20 project teams generated over 40 reports to support the inauguration of the University.

Feasibility Study for Education City in Doha, Qatar

TIEC partnered with the Qatar Foundation for Education to prepare a feasibility study for a new, private university in Doha, Qatar. The study began with a market analysis based on demographic research, consultations with business and government, and a survey of stakeholder parents of prospective university students. The final report included the market analysis results, an academic program profile, estimated facility needs, projected financial requirements, and recommendations for further action. The recommended design also included a research institute affiliated with prominent U.S. universities.
