This document presents the National ICT Policy for Higher Education in Yemen and the input was gathered during a Future Search Conference in Aden from April 18th to April 22nd 2004: “The Future of ICT in Yemeni Higher Education”. Stakeholders from various disciplines of the Yemeni universities, high-level representatives of the MoHESR and representatives from the private ICT sector went through a joint process in building awareness and vision for a national policy regarding ICT in HE.
After the ICT policy has been developed and approved on 2004, a group of experts with TUDelft university have developed a master plan for the main ICT projects required for the sector of higher education of Yemen. One of the key projects in this plan was to establish the Yemen Center of Information Technology in Higher Education (YCIT-HE) to be the engine that runs and supervises other projects like Yemen Higher Education Management Information System, project of Library Information System, project of E-learning system, project of the National Education and Research Network, and other projects.
