Current Status and Future Prospectus
AASTMT has realized the importance of educational innovation and development, since the early days of its establishment in 1972.
The College of Engineering and Technology, at AASTMT, was established in 1990. Currently, the College of Engineering and Technology offers Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in the areas of architectural engineering and environmental design, computer engineering, construction and buildings engineering, electrical and control engineering, electronics and communications engineering, industrial and management engineering, marine engineering, and mechanical engineering.
All programs offered by the College are acknowledged by the Supreme Council of Egyptian Universities (SCU) and fully accredited from the British Professional Institutes (IMechE), (IMarEST), (IET), (ICE), (IStructE), and (IHT), beside the accreditation from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) parts 1 and 2 for the architectural engineering program. Also all college programs, except Architecture & Environmental Design, obtained the “ABET” accreditation since 2010.
The core objective of the college is achieving Excellency in all provided educational services, throughout the effective implementation of continuous improvement concept, as well as the success in obtaining and renewal of all local and international accreditations.
Numbers of qualified and competent faculty members have increased drastically during the last five years resulting in huge developments in research activities whether to obtain research funds from local and international entities or to publish in the highly ranked and prominent scientific journals. Also, higher admission requirements combined with a competitive system of scholarships have been applied to attract high quality students. Furthermore, continuous development of educational resources, lab facilities, and campus infrastructure has been a constant activity in the College to maintain delivery of its quality services to students and faculty members.
As a step forward towards the enhancement of the relationship between the industrial and academic communities, the Industrial Advisory Committee was holding meetings on a semi-annual basis. These meetings discuss the opportunities of students’ practical training, market needs in the college’s graduates and finally the industrial problems that may be treated in the research projects.
In the future, the COE is strategically targeting to efficiently integrate all of our facilities, and resources to prepare young generations for the requirements of the knowledge based societies and to proactively provide competitive, intellectual and market divan academic programs, research, and community services and pledges strong collaboration between our Faulty, staff members, students, researchers, alumni and industrial and business leaders.
