During the meeting, Prof. Dr. Mahmoud El-Metini said that in line with the developments that the university is witnessing at all levels, it was necessary to pay attention to developing the educational process as it is a dynamic process that needs continuous development. It is carried out, in order to support, strengthen and develop it in order to reach more distinguished scientific production.

He added that this meeting brings together similar scientific departments (mathematics, chemistry, physics) in the three faculties in order to achieve communication and coordination between them in the fields of scientific research and joint publication, and in education and equipment, which will enrich scientific research and prevent repetition, as well as allowing each of them to use the available equipment in each faculty. , emphasizing that the outputs of this integration will be more efficient.

Prof. Dr. Mahmoud El-Metini called for the establishment of a council for the scientific department for joint specialization that would help integrating faculties and faculty members and their scientific plans and formulating general policies on which the development of these departments is based. Also, El-Metini praised the efforts of Prof. Dr. Abdel Fattah Saoud, Vice President for Education and Student Affairs, in contributing to achieving effective communication between similar departments.


Prof. Dr. Mahmoud El-Metini stressed the need to encourage students to enroll in basic science departments as the basis of the future, calling on those in charge of these departments in the faculties of science, education and girls to develop joint plans to make them attractive to new students.

On his part, Prof. Dr. Abdul-Fattah Saoud said that the university will work to unify efforts in departments of a similar and common nature in all faculties of the university, noting that this meeting is the beginning in this regard.

He added that the international classifications take into account the single specialization in the university, regardless of the colleges, and thus the production of similar scientific departments affects each other in the international classifications of specializations, and is reflected in the university’s classification as a whole.

Dr. Abdul-Fattah Saoud pointed out that cooperation between similar departments will also make a clear distinction for each of the programs of these sciences, which will create diversity and richness in the programs, which will push more students to join them, as they will have the opportunity to choose between the different programs, in addition to linking these specializations and the labor market.
