About BUC

BUC encompasses sixteen schools (Pharmacy, Medicine, Engineering & Technology, Dentistry, Physical Therapy, Linguistics & Translation, Nursing, Business & Economics, Filmmaking & Performing Arts, Applied Arts, Veterinary Medicine, Biotechnology, Allied Health Sciences, Law, Political Sciences, and Humanities & Social Sciences).

Dr. Hassan El Kalla

In 2010, a group of our high school students graduating from The Futures Schools met with Dr. Hassan El Kalla (Chairman of CIRA) and proposed that he should consider establishing a university that matches the outstanding learning experience they had at their schools. There and then the idea of BUC was born, and it was put into immediate action. The sole mission behind BUC was to create an educational institute that aims to serve the different Egyptian classes with the highest educational quality.

Furthermore, BUC Science Academy has been recently established aiming to be an internationally leading and impactful institute, with cutting-edge interdisciplinary research that can provide solutions to global challenges related to health, science, and humanities. Research and innovation at BUC define frontiers of science and knowledge and have a great impact on society.  The partnership between BUC and multiple global organizations is growing enormously to improve the quality of education and research offered at BUC.
