Consistent with BUE mission “to provide a British-style education of the highest quality supplying graduates that feed and stimulate industry, social and public services and commercial activities of Egypt, the Middle East and beyond,” BUE has embarked on transforming the university into a research-led institution of the first class by creating research centers and attracting internationally recognised, research active academic staff. Moreover, graduate programmes have been an important part of BUE development plan. Today, following graduation of the first undergraduate cohorts from the Faculty of Engineering in 2010, and from the Faculty of Informatics and Computer Science in 2009, the two faculties are launching graduate programmes which offer Masters Degrees in four academic programs in advanced technologies which serve energy, materials, and web sciences. Also the joint BUE-LSBU PhD programme was established to help support BUE assistant lecturer (M.Sc. holder) to pursue their postgraduate studies under a joint supervision programme as part time students at London South Bank University.
