Kafrelsheikh University was established by republican decree No 129 for the year 2006 after it was a branch to Tanta since 1983, including eight faculties such as Agriculture, Commerce, Engineering, Veterinary Medicine, Arts, Specific Education and Sportive Education.

The study in the Faculty of Science had begun in the laboratories of the Faculty of Education and administrative building besides the Faculty in 2009 and the building of the faculty besides the Faculty of Engineering and in front of the Faculty of Agriculture. The building is put up in tender when I was the vice dean in the faculty and the design has many defaults, so I spoke with the dean to ask for modifying the design, but he refuses.


The New Faculties

·         The beginning of study in the Faculty of Pharmacy:

The administrative building for the Faculty of Science is specified as a temporary building in the Faculty, but it has no prepared laboratories for practical trainings, so the labs are equipped with benches according to the international standard specifications.




  The Faculty of Fisheries:

This faculty is urgent need in Kafrelsheikh governorate to meet the needs of the governorate and other governorate and the state generally as well as response to job market requirements to prepare graduate capable of accommodate modern techniques in the field of aquaculture and fish processing and the increase of the productivity of fish wealth as an important sector in national economy, the development and organization of aquatic environment as well as offering the opportunity to contribute in getting rid of employment in the community.


On the other hand, the establishment of this faculty will participate in developing fish production and filling the need of Egyptian citizen of Nile and navy animal proteins with prices commensurate with consumer, with high quality and free of diseases and pollutants. The use of new techniques in the development of fish wealth will lead to double production and the best use of available possibilities in governorate.

     Egypt has occupied the first place in the world in importing fishes from South-east Asia and the Persian Gulf despite its coastline expands about 1800 kilometers on the Mediterranean Sea, the Red Sea and the presence of the River Nile and 9 lakes and it imports 400 000 tons per year of fish waste from Ukraine and South-East Asia.


·         Student Hospital:

This hospital is established to present free health services for university students to reduce the burden on students as a result of the difficulty of arriving at Tanta University students Hospital to receive health service as they are in desperate need of appropriate healthy environment. Clinics are equipped with specialist equipment.


Under Construction Faculties

·         First, the Faculty of Nursing:

Governmental and private hospitals have difficulty in lack of nursing staff due to the need of university hospital to scientifically and academically qualified nurses to present nursing health service. Nursing staff represents 40% - 60% of all employees in the hospital, so it is necessary to establish this faculty in the university.

On the other hand, sectors committee of the Faculties of Nursing has visited the university on Wednesday 6/3/2013 to identify the human and material possibilities for the suggested faculty and the possibility of the beginning of study in it. The sector delegation including Prof Dr Suheir Badr el Deen, Cairo University; Prof Dr Kamilia Fouad Abed Allah, Ain Shams University and Prof Mohga Abed el Aziz, Cairo University, survey the suggested building for the faculty, study hall, laboratories, administrative offices and staff members.




·         Second, the Faculty of Physical Therapy:

Physical Therapy is one of important medical specialists in the integrated health care which presents different services for patients of different diseases and other health needs. This has increased the demand for the study of physical therapy as a result of increasing social and health awareness for the importance of this task and what specialists presents in physical therapy of services as an important part of the medical team at all health facilities as well as the need of health sector for specialists in physical therapy at all levels is an important stimulus for receiving more students for this specialization.
