Depletion of traditional fuels and the exponential increase in energy demand will make energy resources an important issue worldwide. The interactions between human activities in the field of energy had become crucial. Excessive consumption of energy requires innovation and development of systems to utilize the available energy resources efficiently. This will ensure the optimal utilization of available resources, preserve the environment, and create new investment opportunities. Tools for addressing such situations include, but not limited to, Renewable Energy Systems, Alternative Fuels with appropriate developments in combustion systems, Fuel Cells Technologies, Energy Storage Systems, and Energy Conversions and Management. The program offered by the Department of Energy Recourses Engineering is a unique direction among Egyptian Universities and will contribute to the understanding of the above subjects and the national income.
The vision for the Department of Energy Resources Engineering is to be a national and international pioneering and referential offered program in innovation, adaptation, and development of energy conversion technologies through advanced working systems with high efficiency. Graduates of this program will meet the challenges of the growing energy demands without jeopardizing the environment.
The mission of the Department of Energy Resources Engineering is to prepare students well acquainted with the basics and the advances in theoretical and practical knowledge, research tools and acquiring professional skills development to tackle the current energy crisis with high-efficiency systems. This is to build an advanced collaborative system for adapting, developing energy technologies through promoting an effective research and development culture. Moreover, is to formulate comprehensive and competitive solutions, developing expertise, and high-qualified human resources. This will lead to the support of the national green economy and sustainable development, Renewable Energy Systems, Alternative Fuels with appropriate developments in combustion systems, Fuel Cells Technologies, Energy Storage Systems, and Energy Resources Conversion and Management.
