About us

The Quality Assurance Center (QAC) was established by H.E. Prof. Dr. Ismail Abdelghafar in 2012 under the name" Central Unit for Accreditation & Quality Assurance" to satisfy the requirements of the NAQAAE Accreditation. It was then changed to its current name (Quality Assurance Center" to monitor the level of quality of the provided educational processes by AASTMT Colleges and Institutes in all related aspects to ensure continuous improvement and achievement of excellence and uniqueness. This concept was reflected in these words that were taken as a slogan:
WE MAKE GOOD SHIPS AT A PROFIT IF WE CAN, AT A LOSS IF WE MUST, IN ALL CASES WE ARE COMMITTED TO MAKE GOOD SHIPS".
It was established under the presidency of the AASTMT President to ensure the independency of work and to avoid any conflict with the Educational Affairs, this is to comply with the rule No. 307 of Executive Procedure of Universities Law No. 49 for year 1973 as well as to fulfill the requirements of the Accreditation requirements for education in Colleges and Institutes.
Accordingly a Quality Unit was established in each College/institute and a Quality Coordinator in each supporting unit that is under the technical supervision of the QAC to ensure integrity and effectiveness.
QAC is seeking to reflect this philosophy by spreading Quality concepts and its implementations by continuous improvement in work procedures to ensure integrity and effectiveness to ensure the excellence in services provided regarding education, training and consultation that supports the AASTMT competitiveness locally, regionally and internationally.
The QAC as an independent unit works under the direct supervision of the President, its mission is to establish plans and strategies that ensures the improvement of the outcomes in cooperation with all central units in the Academy where performance indicators are developed and monitored to identify the gaps and assist in recommending and monitoring the corrective actions.
