Ferhat Abbas Sétif University 1 UFAS1 , Campus El Bez
Setif 19000, Algeria
Setif (Berber : ⵣⵟⵉⴼ or Zḍif, Arabic: سطيف, Latin: Sitifis), is an Algerian city and the capital of the Sétif Province, it is one of the most important cities of eastern Algeria and the country as a whole, since it is considered the trade capital of the country. It is an inner city, situated in the eastern side of Algeria, at 270 kilometers east of Algiers, at 131 km west of Constantine, in the Hautes Plaines region south of Kabylie. The city is at 1,100 meters of altitude.
Setif was numid before undergoing Roman rule. The name of Setif is not drawn from Latin, but it is a Berber word "Zdif" which means "black lands", referring to the fertility of its lands in Setif. Occupying a strategic position (western gateway to the highlands of Constantine) and a major water point thanks to its water table, located at the foot of the mountains on the threshold of a vast plain, Setif with all its advantages was a point of strategic crossing between the eastern part and the western part of Algeria. Setif was part of the messasylian kingdom and in the year 225 BC it was the capital of a Berber kingdom, a title it lost when Juba preferred Cherchel. It was near Setif that Jugurtha fought a great battle at Caius Marius.
History of the University :
Sétif University Center was created in accordance with Executive Decree No.78-133 of April 9, 1978 to host 242 students spread out over three Institutes (Economics, Exact Sciences and Technology, and Foreign Languages).
In 1984, the University Center witnessed the creation of several National Institutes of Higher Education (INES) having administrative and financial autonomy.
In 1989, the INESs were merged to form an establishment having the status of University.
Since October 17, 1992, the university has been proudly bearing the name of the late Ferhat Abbas, a well-known figure of the national movement and first president of the Provisional Government of the Algerian Republic (GPRA).
During the academic year 1999/2000 and following the reorganization of the institutes into faculties, Ferhat Abbas University has counted 06 Faculties.
Since 2005, Ferhat Abbas University has gradually adopted the LMD System. Since January 12, 2010, after a new restructuring, our university is made up of 8 Faculties and 2 Institutes.
As from November 28, 2011, two separate universities were created (Sétif 1 and Sétif 2)
