The Mechanical Engineering Department was established in 1993 and offers a bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering since September 1998. The program was accredited by the Supreme Council of Egyptian Universities (SCU) on August 27th, 1996. The accreditation was renewed on 2002, 2007, and 2012. The program was accredited by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) on 2005 and renewed on 2010.
