It's my honor to welcome you to the Mechanical Engineering Department and our great community of scholars.
In our department, we have high expectations. We expect our students to perform at high academic level, and for our graduates to go well beyond being significant contributors. We expect each, in his or her way, to become a leader.
We expect the same of our distinguished faculty and teaching assistants, who are among the best in Egypt. They are actively engaged with students and colleagues in taking on some of society's most pressing problems. Through their work, they are not only blazing new trails in research, but taking that knowledge and insight gained and using it to contribute to improving lives all over the region.
Although the Mechanical Engineering Department at BUE is young, our driving mission is to prepare students for a rapidly evolving and complex world. With the BUE slogan "HOW TO THINK NOT WHAT TO THINK", we continue to be committed to core values of building on strong foundations to foster a culture of innovation within a dynamic, vital and engaging intellectual environment. Our vision is to graduate creative problem-solvers who can tackle issues from a variety of perspectives.
On extra-curricula activities level, the department has two student organizations (Society of Mechanical Engineers SME and a student chapter of American Society of Mechanical Engineers ASME) through which we urge our family of students, staff, teaching assistants, lab engineers, and lab technicians to get actively involved and break the ice walls between such groups. Surely this reflects on the educational process in the department.
Finally, it is my pleasure to work with such highly distinguished staff and to serve our inquisitive and passionate student body in achieving our department mission and vision.
