It was envisaged that such an institution would produce graduates of UK standards for key sectors of the Egyptian economy, particularly in the areas of engineering, computer science and business studies.Planning for the new institution was put in train and financial support was provided by a group of prominent Egyptian business and public figures, principal amongst whom was Mr Farid Khamis, Chairman of Oriental Weavers, a major international carpet manufacturing company.

The campus on establishment compromised of only two buildings including a large-scale auditorium with modern conference facilities but is set on a site of approximately 60 acres that will to develop over the years.The BUE was formally inaugurated by HRH Prince of Wales on 22 March 2006.The University has been supported by a high profile and influential Board of Trustees compromising individuals drawn from UK and Egyptian business, public life and educational sectors.A group of UK universities provided the academic direction, teaching and quality management processes thereby ensuring the 'British' quality of the education.The academic staff consisted of highly qualified British, Egyptian and international academics experienced in the British system of Higher Education.BUE was established initially with seven faculties: Engineering, Informatics and Computer Science; and Business Administration , Economics and Political Science, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Communication and Mass Media, Nursing, Law and Arts and Humanities.
