USJ aspires to be a pole of excellence and distinction in the Arab world in basic and applied scientific research. In addition to the laboratories and research units, USJ has created Berytech, a technology pole aimed at developing technology startups, through incubation, business support, counseling, funding, networking and company hosting. In 2011, The Health and Technology Pole (PTS), is the first of its kind in Lebanon dedicated to health research and biotechnology.


In the framework of its international strategy, USJ has developed partnerships with over 200 higher education institutions throughout the world and strives not only to maintain itself as a destination for student mobility, but also to encourage its students to study abroad as part of their curricula.
