Students have the chance to choose what suits their theoretical and practical attitudes. These study courses are conducted and supervised by highly qualified and experienced faculty members who have hard-won expertise in the sector of maritime transport and marine engineering.
The study courses are flexible enough to enable the student to choose from many options. Transfer is easily affected by one stream or another. There are three streams as follows:
This stream comprises 6 semesters (108 CH), one of which spends 6 months on board the training ship AIDA IV as guided sea training (GST) or 6 months on board foreign going vessels as planned sea training (PST). At the end of this phase, the student obtains Basic Studies Certificate, which qualifies him to attend Third Engineer Officer upgrading session and consequently sit for the examinations of Third Engineer Officer COC. This certificate is internationally recognized and it qualifies its holder to serve on board the merchant ships of any country.
This stream comprises 8 semesters (144 CH), one of which spends 6 months on board the training ship AIDA IV as GST or 6 months PST on board foreign going vessels. This stream qualifies the student to obtain B. Tech. in Marine Engineering Technology, in addition to Third Engineer Officer COC.
This stream also gives the student the chance to complete theoretical and practical studies to obtain B. Eng. in Marine Engineering, in addition to the aforementioned certificates, or pursue competency studies and acquire the sea service required for obtaining Chief Marine Engineer Certificate of Competency.
This stream enables the student to complete his studies after the end of the fifth semester of 6 months GST on board the training ship AIDA IV or 6 months PST on board foreign going vessels to obtain B. Eng. in Marine Engineering. This certificate is accredited by the Supreme Council of Egyptian Universities, and qualifies its holder to acquire a membership of the Engineers Syndicate after 10 semesters (180 CH). Holders of this certificate are entitled to pursue higher studies, e.g., M. Sc. & Ph. D. As of 1994, M. Sc. degree in Marine Engineering has been offered.  The stream starts at the College of Maritime Transport and Technology (CMTT) for five semesters and completed at the College of Engineering and Technology (CET).
All the above courses are designed in such a way that enables the student to transfer from one stream to another without any difficulty.
