Mohammed VI Polytechnic University is oriented towards applied research and innovation with a focus on Africa. The University is engaged in economic and human development and puts research and innovation at the forefront of African development.
A mechanism that enables it to consolidate Morocco’s frontline position in these fields, in a unique partnership-based approach and boosting skills training relevant for the future of Africa.
Located in Benguerir, near Marrakech, in the heart of the Mohammed VI Green City, Mohammed VI Polytechnic University intends to shine on a national, continental and international scale.
More than just a traditional academic institution, Mohammed VI Polytechnic University (UM6P) is a platform for experimentation, a breeding ground for opportunities, which students refer to as a “School of Life”.
Reduced representation of the outside world, with its challenges, perspectives and promises; the University aims to reveal the potential of Moroccan youth and students from all over Africa. UM6P is a hub of knowledge dedicated to research, high-level education and innovation to support the development of the continent.
Our university is also committed to an innovative pedagogical approach which places learning by experimentation and practice at the heart of training and research. Our pedagogy is at the service of curiosity and creativity of students, professors and partners. This Safe Space, which welcomes life in all its diversity, complexity and opportunities, is not intended to simply train engineers, architects or even managers.
UM6P is a new kind of learning environment: thanks to its Living Labs, Digital and Peer-to-peer learning, we want to accompany youth in their path of becoming pioneers solving the major challenges of our time. We want to support them so that they become innovators of lifelong learning solutions and transform obstacles into opportunities. On a campus designed to foster scientific, cultural, sporting and artistic emulation, all infrastructures are open to the community.
We would like everyone to appropriate the spaces and resources in order to instill a proactive and progressive state of mind focused on entrepreneurship and wealth creation. By promoting social and territorial inclusion, Mohammed VI Polytechnic University adopts a sustainable participatory approach: students are the main players in an academic experience creating shared value at the service of the entire ecosystem. We innovate, we study, build and move forward together.
