Inauguration of HIE Extension Building

The foundations were dug back in September 2017, and the building has been going up since that time. The new building boasts state-of-the-art technology with well-appointed classrooms, a Learning Hub, library, seminar and computer rooms. The building will be used for the International Communication Studies degree programme while the In-Service Courses will be run in the original building.

There is also a large mosque and gym within the complex. The new buildings will give HIE the opportunity and space to enhance and improve the delivery of educational and training programmes.
