Mechanical engineering

Baccalaureos of mechanical engineering

Partner university, Uniervsity of Haute Alsace

Type de partnership :

Egyptian degree, with recognition par the Egyptian Engineer Syndicate, and participation in teaching from the partner university with further study in France for a Master

The program is to provide a quality education covering a broad spectrum of Mechanical Engineering specialty areas that prepares students to effectively apply engineering knowledge to the evaluation, design, operation, and maintenance of integrated governmental, industrial, and service systems.

The program prepares for several professions, in particular automotive engineer, energy system engineer, control and instrumentation engineer, Mechatronics engineer, Maintenance engineer.

Objectives of the program

  • • Provide the skills and knowledge required for the design, installation, operation, maintenance and inspection of mechanical and energy systems and be able to apply them in a work environment.
  • • Be able to professionally utilize information technology, mathematical and computational solutions, modern experimental techniques, and data analysis in solving practical problems.
  • • Be able to formulate problems, think creatively, and synthesize information as practiced professionally in local industry as well as regionally and globally.
  • • Be able to fit in various working environments through effective oral and written communication skills and multidisciplinary team work ability.
  • • Be able to integrate academic learning with field practice in order to promote professional development, career planning, and engagement in life-long learning.
  • • Understand and abide by the code of ethics adopted by employers and professional societies.

Teaching Methodology


The program takes place over five years, including two preparatory years (PREP). Students follow 48 courses (43 compulsory + 5 elective) + Graduation Project + 30 courses in the two PREP Years.


Before the end of semester 4, the program announces an orientation session for PREP 2 students. The deadline for the students to make their choice of a program (PEC or TIC) is two weeks after the end of final exams of semester 4. the end of semester 7, the program announces the elective courses for PEC 4 students. The deadline to choose their elective courses is the end of final exams of S7.


The program has one major, Mechanical Engineering. But it offers from the fourth year three specializations: Production, Energy and Mechatronics (Control) (PEC). Each student must choose one course from these specializations as a major and one course from a second specialization as a minor.

Internships and projects

The Program has a Protocol with Egypt Gulf Elevators & Escalators Company regarding training its students and employing its graduates. Program students are also encouraged to perform summer training in local and/or international companies.

Admission requirements

Education is bilingual either in French or in English. Students must master both languages at the end of their studies. To integrate UFE, students must demonstrate a minimum level either in English or French equivalent to B1 level. A mandatory pre-semester is organized before courses start.

Application evaluation with grades, a recommendation letter of the High School and a video presenting a personal statement (Who Am I, What do I like, Whom do I want to become,…)

After admission, final registration is final after meeting criteria for all engineering programs, including the TIC, set by the Ministry of Higher Education. The candidate must obtain 80% in the baccalaureate. All students are admitted to a first year of preparation (PREP 1). Those interested in the Technology of Informatics and communication Program should pursue a second preparatory year. At the end of PREP 2, students choose their specialty with new admission criteria.

Admission process

The admission period open on April 25th till June 30th. Future students must apply both on the website of the MOSHER and on UFE website. Once the admission fee is paid, the procedure is fully online : interview, documents deposit and language evaluation.

International mobility

The program has signed a protocol of student exchange with Montpellier University, in France. In addition, some of the senior year students conduct their Master thesis at our French partner university of Haute Alsace and other places in Europe.

After the program

Most of the sophomore (year 4) students are admitted to the Master Program of the Partner University (Haute Alsace). Thus, at the end of year 5 they complete both PEC BSc degree and the Partner Master degree simultaneously. The double degrees allow graduates to pursue a PhD degree internationally.
