The roots of the Marine Engineering Technology Department extend back to the date of the establishment of AMTA in 1972, when the Marine Engineering Technology Department started to offer a two-year programme of basic studies for engineering cadets as well as upgrading courses for marine engineers.
Due to the technological advances and development in the Maritime Transport Industry and the subsequent need for enhancing the technical expertise of engineers working on board ships, the programme of study in the Marine Engineering Technology Department has been reviewed and updated to offer a B. Eng. in Marine Engineering and Technology in conjunction with Third Marine Engineer following a five-year period of study. This degree has been accredited by the Supreme Council for Egyptian Universities and acknowledged by the European and Arab countries.
The diversity and growth of engineering branches in the Academy led to the establishment of the College of Engineering and Technology in 1991. The Department of Mechanical and Marine Engineering has become one of the departments of the College and provided programm es leading to either of discipline. Due to the different disciplines required for marine engineering cadets and in order to gather the educational activities of marine transport in one college, it was decided to separate both programmes and by the end of 1994 the Marine Engineering Technology Department was established under the hierarchy of the College of Maritime Transport and Technology, supervising the following programmes:
- Basic studies for Marine Engineering cadets.
- B. Tech. in Marine Engineering Technology in conjunction with Third Marine Engineer.
- Other related specialized courses upon request.
* All Courses are delivered in English
