The BUE was formally inaugurated by HRH Prince of Wales and HE Mrs. Mubarak, Egypt’s First Lady, on 22 March 2006.
The University has been supported by a high profile and influential Board of Trustees compromising individuals drawn from UK and Egyptian business, public life and educational sectors.
A group of UK universities, led by Loughborough University provided the academic direction, teaching and quality management processes thereby ensuring the ‘British’ quality of the education.
The academic staff consisted of highly qualified British, Egyptian and international academics experienced in the British system of Higher Education.
BUE was established initially with seven faculties: Engineering, Informatics and Computer Science; and Business Administration , Economics and Political Science, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Communication and Mass Media, and Nursing.
