In line with the liberal arts approach to education to which the University is committed, the School of Sciences and Engineering (SSE) offers degree programs in natural sciences (biology, chemistry, and physics), mathematics and actuarial science and computer science and engineering, as well as a number of engineering programs (architectural and construction, electronics, mechanical and petroleum).
The school also offers Master of Science degrees in biotechnology, chemistry, computer science, construction engineering, environmental engineering, environmental systems design, mechanical engineering, physics, and robotics, control and smart systems.
The school offers Master of Engineering degrees in construction engineering, electronics engineering, electronics engineering with a concentration in management of technology, enviromental systems design and mechanical engineering. The school also offers a Master of Computing (MComp).
A Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) is offered in applied science and engineering.
A distinguishing feature of the school is the prominence given to laboratory instruction. Practical, hands-on experience complements and reinforces the lecture courses. Being well-equipped with latest up-to-date equipment and efficiently managed laboratories are an important pedagogical asset of the school.
Highly qualified and dedicated faculty, supported by equally qualified and dedicated staff, form the backbone of the School of Sciences and Engineering.
Students in the School of Sciences and Engineering are educated to acquire an appreciation of their responsibilities to society, and to prepare themselves for successful careers and leadership. The school provides an environment in which students develop their critical thinking capabilities, problem solving skills, communication skills and proficiency in the tools of learning.
The School of Sciences and Engineering is accredited by the National Authority for Quality Assurance and Accreditation of Education (NAQAAE). NAQAAE is a government body formed in 2007 with the purpose of establishing quality standards for Egypt's educational institutions.
