Department History


Graduate studies leading to Masters degrees started to be offered in September 1994. On 9 November 2000, the Committee of the Engineering Sector at the Supreme Council of Universities visited the College to evaluate the graduate programs, and collected data on laboratories, libraries and other college facilities. It also asked for data describing the performance of staff members and researchers on overseas scholarships.

On 28 April 2001, the Supreme Council of Universities issued the decree No. 30 of 2001 stating that the Master's degrees offered by AASTMT in (1) Electronics and Communications Engineering, (2) Computer Engineering, (3) Electrical Engineering and Control, (4) Mechanical Engineering, (5) Marine Engineering, (6) Engineering Management, and (7) Construction and Building Engineering are all equivalent for 5 years to those offered by State Egyptian Universities.

The course programs achieved the set of objectives in accordance with the standards, criteria and requirements of the Degree Accreditation Board for Chartered Engineers (DABCE), UK and the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), UK.  The AASTMT ISO9001/ 2000 procedures related to the accreditation criteria were a concrete base to implement the required standards.  In February 2005, the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) at the UK validated the program of B.Sc. in Architectural Engineering and Environmental Design.  In June 2005, the Degree Accreditation Board for Chartered Engineers (DABCE) at the UK accredited all the other engineering programs.

On 19 June 2006, the Supreme Council of Universities (SCU) issued the decree No. 70 of 2006 stating that the Master's degree offered by AASTMT in Architectural Engineering and Environmental Design is equivalent for 3 years to that offered by the state Egyptian universities.

On 19 June 2006, SCU issued the decree No. 79 of 2006 to pursue the decree No. 30 of 2001 and to renew for 3 years the equivalence of the Master's degrees offered by AASTMT at Alexandria in (1) Electronics and Communications Engineering, (2) Computer Engineering, (3) Electrical Engineering and Control, (4) Mechanical Engineering, (5) Marine Engineering, and (6) Construction and Building Engineering to those offered by the State Egyptian Universities.

On 24 July 2006, SCU issued the decree No. 97 of 2006 to pursue the decree No. 30 of 2001 and to renew for 3 years the equivalence of the Master's degree offered by AASTMT at Alexandria in (1) Electronics and Communications Engineering, (2) Computer Engineering, (3) Electrical Engineering and Control, (4) Mechanical Engineering, (5) Marine Engineering, and (6) Construction and Building Engineering to those offered by the State Egyptian Universities.

On 17 October 2010, SCU issued the decree No. 223 of 2010 to pursue the decree No. 30 of 2001 and to renew for 3 years the equivalence of the Master's degree offered by AASTMT at Alexandria in (1) Electronics and Communications Engineering, (2) Computer Engineering, (3) Electrical Engineering and Control, (4) Mechanical Engineering, (5) Marine Engineering, and (6) Construction and Building Engineering to those offered by the State Egyptian Universities.
