The Arab Academy for Science, Technology and Maritime Transport is an affiliate to the Arab League that was established in 1972. The Academy comprises four main colleges which offer a wide variety of specializations: the College of Management and Technology, the College of Engineering and Technology, the College of Maritime Transport and Technology and our most recent addition, the School of Computing and Information Technology. Around 15,000 students are currently enrolled in these colleges.
The Academy’s learning philosophy is echoed in its name. The term “Technology” was purposely added to reflect the Academy’s emphasis on the “know-how” rather than the “know-what” in its learning approach.
In 2001, the College of Management and Technology Cairo- Heliopolis was founded. Its establishment came in response to the Academy’s desire to create a source of knowledge and skills for the business sector and professionals. Around 500 students have graduated from the College of Management and Technology. Over 1300 students are currently enrolled in it.
