Overview

Helwan University is a member of the Egyptian Supreme Council of Universities. It was established on July 26, 1975[1] by Act No. 70 of 1975 over 350 acres of land. It is the youngest of 3 major governmental universities in Cairo.

However, it goes back to the 19th century during the reign of Muhammad Ali of Egypt who established “The Operations School”. The fields of that school were the basis of many institutes that formed Helwan University later.

Although Helwan University is the most recent of 3 major governmental universities in Cairo, it encompasses some of the oldest faculties not only in Egypt but also in the Middle East. The Faculty of Applied Arts, for example, was established in 1839, while the Faculty of Fine Arts and Art Education were established in 1908 and 1936 respectively.

Location
