Mohammed VI Polytechnic University is an institution oriented towards applied research and innovation. Focused on Africa, it aims to place itself among the world-renowned universities in these fields.
Its founding Campus, located in the commune of Benguerir, near Marrakech, is in the heart of the Mohammed VI Green City, to better shine on a national, continental and international scale.
More than a traditional academic institution, the Mohammed VI Polytechnic University is a platform for experimentation and a breeding ground for opportunities that students like to call very aptly “The school of life”.
Launched in 2009 by His Majesty King Mohammed VI, may God assist him, as part of the OCP Group's major urban development projects, the Green City aims to establish itself as a world-class university center with the aim of offering an attractive and ecologically exemplary living environment around a knowledge ecosystem. The City positions itself as a new city, with both local and national dimensions.
At the local level, due to its extent, its consistency, its volume of investment, its attractiveness and its duration, the project has a remarkable urban planning, economic and social impact on the neighboring town of Benguerir. Given the design and ambition attached to the UM6P, the heart of the new city, this project also has a national dimension because the UM6P is called upon to play a major role in the success of the emergence industrial sector of the kingdom, through its contribution in terms of training, research and innovation.
