Welcome to The University

Prof. Mahmoud Mohy El-Din President of Pharos University

I take pride in being the President of Pharos University in Alexandria (PUA), this ancient university founded in 2006 as Alexandria’s first private university. Working for PUA is like no other, as it offers constructive cooperation in a family atmosphere with a distinguished group of professors, administratives, and students. I work diligently to serve everyone within this giant educational institution that offers a distinguished and diverse educational service. PUA also seeks to realize the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and Egypt 2030 Strategy.

PUA now includes 12 specialized faculties accredited by the Ministry of Higher Education and the Supreme Council of Universities, covering most practical and theoretical fields. Furthermore, PUA includes the only Faculty of Physical Therapy in Alexandria. Similarly, PUA’s Faculty of Arts and Design contains the only Media Arts Department in the governorate. The Faculty of Engineering, however, has an international partnership with the Higher Institute of Technology in Sweden (KTH), while the Faculty of Financial and Administrative Sciences grants a dual degree from the Technological University Dublin, Ireland (TU Dublin). These two partner universities are among the most significant and oldest technological universities in Europe. These partnerships also include applying international academic standards for the quality of education, and providing regular student exchanges from which PUA students learn about the latest methods and technologies in our contemporary world.

In addition, PUA includes 12 modern centers such as the Translation Center, the Center for Teaching Arabic to Non-speakers, Field Training Center, and other various centers in multiple educational, cultural, and societal fields.

PUA obtained ISO 9001:2015 certification for applying outstanding academic and administrative standards. Therefore, it holds a prestigious position among Egyptian universities that matches its remarkable location in the heart of Alexandria. Hence, PUA comes in the forefront of universities in terms of admission applications submitted by students from Alexandria and neighboring cities.

PUA recognizes the significance of technological development, scientific research, practical application, and excellence within academic communities that embrace trends with intertwined characteristics in the modern era. Therefore, it established a modern entrepreneurship center, as well as an entrepreneurship club, which encourage students to continuously innovate. Stressing the necessity of developing students’ sports, artistic, and creative skills, PUA established several state-of-the-art playgrounds, along with a distinguished student theater.

Moreover, PUA provides an electronic platform through which students can register for online learning and register for courses throughout their academic years. This platform also allows students to attend theoretical and practical lectures within interactive educational programs, and high-level scientific training to enable them to meet the latest requirements.

In addition to all of this, PUA offers postgraduate programs and degrees in numerous medical, engineering, tourism, and linguistic as well as decor specializations.

Welcome to PUA to study and participate with your Egyptian and foreign peers in various scientific, artistic, and literary fields as a member of a system to which everyone within feels a true sense of belonging. I also extend my sincere thanks and gratitude to all those interested in the university, whether current students, graduates, or parents.
