The undergraduate programmes in FEEE are five-year programs; divided into a 4-year program in addition to prep year. By successfully completing the requirements of the preparatory year, you will have the knowledge and skills to enter a BUE degree Programmes.
Honours Degree Programmes offered in:
- BSc. Petroleum Engineering and Gas Technology.
- BSc. Renewable Mechanical Energy
- BSc. Renewable Electrical Energy.
- BSc. Biochemical Engineering.
- BSc.Environmental Sustainable Architecture.
We conduct excellence and high quality in teaching and research (learn how to think not what to think) and provide students with the necessary knowledge in renewable energy and biochemistry.
According to our study plan, the student will get a broad and intensive knowledge in renewable energy technologies. The curricula offered in the Faculty of Energy and Environmental Engineering programmes emphasise both theoretical and practical aspects including design and implementation. It provides students with the theoretical and practical skills that industry and employers require. The programmes also include a number of optional modules that permit the student to undertake further studies in the field of other sustainable technologies.
Our academics and students will engage in research areas such as renewable energy, solar power, wind energy and biomass. We collaborate with researchers around the world from a range of globally recognized Universities and institutes. The faculty also offers student activities and field trips to give the student an international experience and leadership.
Please explore our website if you would like to learn more about our staff, research activities and initiatives at the Faculty of Energy and Environmental Engineering. We hope you will join us as we help address some of the most pressing challenges facing the world today.

Frequently Asked Questions
The Faculty of Energy and environmental engineering has specified strategic objectives and stated targets in order to attain the six themes which are underpinning the new BUE strategic plan. The objectives and corresponding targets are listed in the following discussion in three main areas that represent the platform for the faculty’s activities including Teaching & learning, Research, and community services. In addition, it is important provide the needed support for achieving such objectives and targets through identifying the required enabling structures and mechanisms.
I. TEACHING & LEARNING
We will ensure that the students are active participants in their learning and are provided with a transformational Student Experience to enable them to excel whilst developing graduate attributes required by employers and for lifetime achievement across Egypt and the MENA region, through a technology enabled, high quality, and British style teaching and learning, within a vibrant 21st Century setup.
The primary goal of the Faculty of Energy and environmental engineering is enhancing the quality of the student experience at BUE to contribute in raising our profile as a Faculty of high quality and standards. There are various aspects to achieving this status: attracting the highest quality students; hiring a research active academic staff capable of delivering UK higher education in accordance with the British standards; delivering effective, communicative and innovative methods of teaching; providing a learning environment that encourage our students to become independent learners and to realise their potential. Each of the set objectives is mapped to the themes and their corresponding objectives and/or targets, in the BUE strategic plan, to ensure and demonstrate compatibility of both plans, this is indicated between brackets at the end of each objective to reflect the theme number and the corresponding objective number.
Produce world-class research outcome that has economic impact on Egypt’s development and applications in the international arena and reflects on the international ranking of the faculty and BUE, through knowledge COMMERCIALIZATION schemes via the BUE Science Park platform.
The Faculty of Energy and Environmental Engineering at BUE is aiming to position itself, as a top contender among the academic institutions in Africa and the Middle East, as a research-led faculty where teaching is indicated by the research activities of its academic staff. The Faculty promotes applied research as a necessary and crucial part of its role within both academic and wider communities.
The Faculty of Energy and Environmental Engineering conducts broad-based, internationally competitive research that is relevant to the technological development of Egypt and the MENA region. It is building a strong academic base for matching with industrial and local communities for research-based problem solving, education, knowledge transfers and commercialization, which shall integrate with the new BUE Science Park. It is establishing up-to-date central research facilities and infrastructure to support high quality national and international research teams and support the activities of the science park.
The Faculty of Energy and Environmental Engineering at BUE aims to be recognised internationally as providing centres of excellence in select set of research themes which fit within the strategic objectives of Egypt and the MENA region. It encourages the identification of areas of research strengths with the intention of developing further centres of excellence on which to focus its strategic support for research. Each of the set objectives is mapped to the themes and their corresponding objectives and/or targets, in the BUE strategic plan, to ensure and demonstrate alignment of both plans, this is indicated between brackets at the end of each objective to reflect the theme number and the corresponding objective number.
II. COMMUNITY SERVICES & ENTERPRISE
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, this will contribute to the society’s development and ultimately the economic development of Egypt and the MENA region through the establishment of an integrated industrial linkage scheme via a range of platforms including the BUE Science Park.
The Faculty of Energy and Environmental Engineering is planning to establish multifaceted professional dialogue with several industrial partners which resulted in the engagement of both sides in a fruitful collaborative scheme. The Faculty is also aiming to launch an 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). the Faculty is aiming at identifying a range of other services that could be offered to the community in light of its staff high expertise.
Within this broad strategy, the Faculty of Energy and Environmental Engineering at BUE will realize 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,
