Programme Overview

This program offers a balanced combination of mechanics, electronics and computer engineering skills plus special courses for integrating these disciplines of engineering to be able to develop and implement complex systems. The program is designed to give students deepened knowledge of principles of mechanics, electronics, control theory and computer programming.

Graduates of this program will have the ability to apply mathematics, physics, mechanics and electronics to solve engineering and industrial problems. They will develop technical expertise in mechanical design, computer-aided design, robotics as well as manufacturing technology.

In addition, they will develop technical expertise in Digital design, micro-controller operation, interfacing, and programming, sensors, actuators, drive systems, control theory and data communication. They will have the knowledge, skills and tools to design and analyze the engineering systems for better operation, performance and control.
The graduates will be well prepared to pursue further studies and research nationally and internationally.

The Faculty of Engineering and Material Science is offering an International Bachelor program in Mechatronics Engineering. This program consists of 8 semesters which take 4 years to complete. The degree that will be issued is a Bachelor of Science in Engineering and Material Science.

According to the law in Egypt demanding at least 10 semesters as requirement for the Egyptian Bachelor in Engineering, a student can get the Egyptian Bachelor after another year of his/her study after the International Bachelor program. This year is considered to be the first year (2 terms) in the study program towards getting the International Master.

GUC Admission test
GUC Philosophy is to build on points of strength in students. This will be reflected in the evaluation process of applicants, which includes in addition to the final high school scores-the GUC Admission Exams which consist of:

• GUC Reasoning Test:
Duration: 50 minutes.
Details: Questions are classified into categories according to their types namely: verbal comprehension and relationships, induction, facts and results, deduction and discovery

• GUC Computerized English Language Test:
Duration: 45 minutes.
Details: Made up of 3 sections: language use, reading comprehension, and listening comprehension. It aims at finding out whether the student can study without difficulty in a university where the language of instruction is English; in other words whether the students can understand lectures delivered in English, and read textbooks and lecture notes written in English.

Those who do not pass the test will have the chance to repeat the test only one more time for free.

On the date of the Admission test, the student MUST arrive at the University at least ONE HOUR before the Session Time in order to complete the registration process for the test; the student should head to the Admission Office upon arrival and bring the following documents with him/her:
