The Community Services & Enterprise Division’s strategic objective is to deliver economic, social and cultural benefits to the wider community through the faculty’s teaching, research, commercial activities, social enterprise, and community service, as well as through the impact of its students, graduates and alumni.
The Faculty of Energy and Environmental Engineering is establishing multifaceted professional dialogue with several industrial partners which results in the engagement of both sides in a fruitful collaborative scheme.
The Faculty is also launching entrepreneurial workshops and events to allow range of opportunities for individuals and teams to present promising innovative ideas in topics related to the faculty’s focus (energy, water desalination, recycling).
Within this broad strategy, the Faculty of Energy and Environmental Engineering at BUE realizes its aim in integrating their operations with the new BUE Science Park, as an active supporter of new and established SMEs (small and medium size enterprises) using the expertise of both the students and the staff by:
- Promoting enterprise (i.e. the ability to innovate, recognise and create opportunities, work in a team, take risks and respond to challenges)
- Assisting new and existing entrepreneurs to launch and grow their own ventures, by providing the necessary technical support
- Working with stakeholders in Egypt, often with reference to curriculum and programme development, to advance opportunities for students and graduates, fund professorships and sponsor the upgrade of current facilities
