We would like to know a brief history of yourself and how Nile University came to existence.
My name is Mohamed Yosif Sukkar, I was born in Wady Halfa in the extreme East Nile. I attended intermediate school in El-Obeid in the mid-west Kordofan province. I obtained my first degree at Khartoum University from faculty of medicine. I worked as a teaching assistant in department of physiology at Khartoum University. I obtained a scholarship to United Kingdom from British council at the University of Edinburg, department of physiology. Also obtained my PhD in endocrinology at the University of Edinburgh. I became a member of the medical research council, national committee for environment at national council for research. I attended several conferences on education, environment and human habitat. Thus, I became a multidisciplinary.
I furthered my research in Saudi Arabia at King AbdelAzeez University as a post graduate, where I become a member of King Abdallah Research Centre. Our research was based on miracles of the Qur’an in embryology which published in the Embryology book of MOORE.
Nile University was first projected in the year 2003, after a mutual consultation with my colleagues Prof. Abd El Rahman Musa and Prof. Ahmed M. El Hassan and others. Nile University began to make intake of students in the year 2007 with four courses. Alhamdulillah! Today, Nile University now offers eleven courses in medical, engineering and social science courses.
