The Faculty of Engineering at BUE was established in September 2005. The BUE has identified the delivery of high quality degree programmes, according to the British education ethos, as one of its main objectives from the day of its inception. Over the past ten years the BUE has established and embedded a comprehensive structure of quality assurance procedures and systems. Validation by UK partner universities was selected as the tool of ensuring such quality, based on QAA norms and standards. Validation by UK partners allows students, who qualify, to be awarded a British degree, in addition to the Egyptian accredited degree.
