UMONS was created in 2009 following a merger between the Université de Mons-Hainaut and the Faculty of Engineering of Mons, the university’s oldest faculty.
> UMONS is one of the founding members of the Pôle hainuyer, one of the five academic clusters instituted in the Wallonia-Brussels Federation under the scope of the restructuring of higher education. It assumes the co-presidency of this cluster, which groups together 3 universities, 3 university colleges, 3 schools of arts and 26 continuing education institutions, and offers nearly 600 courses in 21 fields of education to more than 30,000 students in the province of Hainaut.
> With more than 900 researchers, research objectives in UMONS are pursued both regionally and internationally. The common goal of all UMONS researchers is to develop expertise on a large scale, subsequently benefiting society, particularly the region.
> Accommodating students in a learning environment suited to the individual is a priority of UMONS. Through the education on offer at UMONS, we promote critical thinking, open-mindedness, tolerance, responsibility, and autonomy, and develop students’ and researchers’ intellectual, cultural and human experiences in order for them to become responsible members of society.
