New Campus Development
Former Egyptian President Adly Mansour issued decree 115 on April 9, 2014, granting 198 acres to Zewail City for the construction of the new campus in the October Gardens of 6th of October City.
President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi decreed that the new campus be built by the Engineering Authority of the Egyptian Armed Forces and inaugurated in a one-year time frame. The University of Science and Technology in Zewail City "UST" and Research Institutes are now fully operational at current campus in October Gardens. A team of prominent architects worked — under direct supervision of the Chairman of the Board — on developing the rest buildings on campus that would achieve the City’s vision and mission within a structure that unifies the three essential components of Zewail City.
