Art and Design academic appointments, The British University in Egypt
Founded in 2005, the British University in Egypt (BUE) is one of the fastest developing private Universities in Egypt and the broader region. We are committed to preparing graduates for the modern economy, playing a transformative role in our national economic and social development, and we bring together high quality teaching and learning with a strong culture of research, innovation and impact.
As of today we have 11,000 students who study across 11 faculties. Our mission is to offer a modern innovative British-style education from a vibrant 21st Century campus, producing distinctive, highly employable and high calibre graduates contributing to the development of Egypt, Africa and the MENA region.
We are sited on a 60 acre purpose-built campus in El Sherouk, one of the new residential and commercial cities in the Greater Cairo area. It benefits from close links to the International Airport and the New Administrative Capital and is 40km from downtown Cairo.
BUE has its own Egyptian degree awarding powers. In addition, the vast majority of our programmes are validated by our UK academic partners, London South Bank University and Queen Margaret University. As a result most of our students graduate with both an Egyptian validated degree and a UK STET degree.
We are driving innovation through our Science and Innovation Park, recently developed with private sector partners.
The total floor area is 14,000 square meters, of which 3,000 square meters are assigned to Mostafa El-Sayed Nanotechnology Research Centre, and the remainder dedicated to start-up, Small and Medium sized Enterprises and Science Park Services. The development of our research culture is indicated by the nearly 300 articles stemming from our academics’ work, published in highly regarded journals during 2020.
The post comes with an attractive remuneration package, including accommodation, and will commence depending on the availability of the successful candidate. Contracts are usually offered for a two-year period in the first instance.
