The university's associated values are: transparency, performance, team spirit, equity, acknowledgement of merits, ethics, openness towards the community.

The faculties offer academic degree programs in a wide range of fields (engineering, science, humanities, medicine, music), develop scientific research and provide lifelong learning programs based on the societal request.
