King Faisal Foundation is going to launch a private university next year, “to cause a change in Saudi Arabia,” said Prince Bandar bin Saud bin Khalid, deputy managing director of the foundation. According to the him, the new university should be like MIT or the Cambridge of the Middle East. They will teach engineering, medicine, science and business technology, and will not offer any courses in Islamic or social studies. The interesting part of this news story is: Male and female medical students are going to study together. Now this is going to make some people lose their minds, isn’t it? It is weird how the Sahat guys did open their fires on this story, yet.
