Welcome from the dean

Prof. Dr. Omar Ghonim

In the name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Gracious

First of All, I would like to welcome our freshman students and wish them all the best in their studies in arts and design. I also wish our regular students all success.

Arts and design have been among the cultural requirements of nations throughout history. Today, with the development of the consumer market and the automated reproduction of artworks, art has completely new functions from its predecessor. It now includes a wide audience with multiple tastes, visions, values, and understanding of the function of art.

In spite of all the impacts of the late 20th century modernism, and the postmodernism in the first quarter of the 21st century, the search for spiritual and material harmony has become an issue that will remain intrinsic to the artwork, its vitality, and the depth of its cause that expresses the various contemporary issues, history of current moments, creation of the general artistic context, cultivation of aesthetic taste and sense of the existence of sound criticism based on science and ethics.
