About us

The Quality Assurance and accreditation Center (QAAC) was established by H.E. Prof. Dr. Ismail Abdelghafar in 2012 under the name "Central Unit for Accreditation & Quality Assurance" to satisfy the requirements of the national and international accreditation agencies, to ensure the independency of work, and to avoid any conflict with the Educational Affairs. This is to comply with rule No. 307 of Executive Procedure of Universities Law No. 49 for the year 1973 as well as to fulfill the requirements of the Accreditation for education in Colleges and Institutes.

IIt was then changed to its current name "Quality Assurance and Accreditation Center" to monitor the level of quality achieved by the provided educational processes by AASTMT Colleges and Institutes in all related aspects to ensure continuous improvement and achievement of excellence and uniqueness. This concept was reflected in these words that were taken as a slogan:

One team, One Goal, Spreading Success

QAAC along its establishment assisted the Colleges in obtaining national and international accreditations for its academic programs it delivered locally and regionally. All academic programs are accredited from the Egyptian High Supreme Council as well as The National Authority for Quality Assurance & Accreditation of Education (NAQAAE). Other Accreditations were obtained by its colleges like, ABET for Engineering and Computer Science programs, RIBA for Architecture programs, AACSB for Business programs, FIBAA for Logistics and Supply Chain programs, and ZEvA for Maritime and Fisheries and Aquaculture programs.

In this regard, AASTMT was the leading educational institute in Egypt to obtain the Certificate of compliance of the ISO standard ISO 9001:1994 for its colleges since 1999 till now where a management system is established, implemented, maintained, and continuously improved to comply with any updates of the standard. Over 24 years QAAC contributed to the spread of this success to receive the latest version of ISO 9001:2015 in most of AASTMT branches and adopt different international standards in some sectors throughout AASTMT such as ISO 14001:2015, ISO 22301:2018, ISO 22000:2018, and ISO 45001:2018.
