The Egyptian Russian University was founded according to the governmental rescript no 256 in 2006. The campus is located in Badr City, Cairo-Suez Road. ERU has been established in cooperation with seven of the best Russian institutions as patrons and partners. They guarantee high-standard of academic programs at ERU. Besides, they provide ERU students with the opportunity of doing summer training and / or studying for one or more semesters in Russia. In Fall 2006, ERU started with two faculties, pharmacy and engineering. Plans are underway to add more faculties in the future. In 2011, ERU celebrated its first cohort graduates of the two faculties. The B.Sc. degrees, granted to ERU graduates, have been accredited by the Supreme Council of Egyptian Universities and the Ministry of Higher Education. ERU graduates join respective Syndicates. Currently, the faculty of engineering offers four programs: Architecture Engineering, Construction Engineering, Telecommunications Engineering, and Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering. Three more programs have already been approved, and will be introduced in the near future: Renewable Energy Engineering, Heavy Equipment Engineering, and Nuclear Power Stations Engineering.
The Egyptian-Russian University occupies a prominent place among the Egyptian, Arab and international universities and participate in cultural and scientific cooperation between the Egyptian and Russian peoples.
Academic System ERU adopts the credit hour system, which gives the student the opportunity to study according to his own pace and his own abilities. Unlike the usual fixed format teaching which is followed by Egyptian universities, the credit hour system enables the student to select a number of courses from a well planned academic program. Each student is assigned an academic advisor who guides him in planning his study program, monitors his progress, and helps solve any problems that may be encountered. The system encourages the students to develop independent thinking, gives them enough time to widen their scope of interest, and trains them to search for information through the use of the library and other learning facilities. A student is permitted to repeat a course in which a low grade was obtained in order to improve the overall average. Upon the recommendation of the Faculty Council, the University Council grants the B.Sc. degree in an academic program after the student successfully achieves the required number of credit hours, specified by the academic program regulations. The academic year is divided into three semesters: fall and spring with duration of 15 weeks each, and summer with 6 intensive weeks.
