Campus Life[edit]

Club Name Club Logo Description
Enactus (Formerly known as SIFE) Enactus offers university students the opportunity to apply what they are learning in the classroom to solve real world problems. Through the process of teaching and serving others, they catch a glimpse of the true scope of their personal potential and are forever changed. As they go about the process of organizing their team, developing education projects and competing in a global competition, they develop teamwork, leadership, and communication skills far beyond those of the average university student.
Model British Parliament (MBP) The Model British Parliament (MBP) is a student organised simulation aimed at university students in Egypt. Through this model, we seek to create a politically aware environment that encourages political participation and knowledge. In this model, participants engage in debates and discussions about momentous mainstream topics as civic rights, public policies and democratic values. We mainly endorse the honing of the members’ debating, presentation, public speaking, leadership, and communication skills, as well as encouraging teamwork (through working within their political parties in the model parliament). Students will further develop to be effective mindful citizens, henceforth, future political leaders.
Business Students Community (BSC) Business Students Community at BUE.jpg B.S.C is a community that works with leaders in business and university students to make a difference in their communities while developing the skills to become socially responsible business leaders. Students participating will have a deeper educational experience by having a closer connection by each other. Students in year 3 after prep are the people in charge of the community in order to transfer the experience for the rest of the students. Students are required to participate in a wide range of competitions in order to enhance the community. Department members are required to set up conferences related to their major that enhance the reputation and the name of the BUE business department.
Multicultural Club The Multicultural Club was a simple concept that the founder of the club had and wanted to create. The concept was to give culture to the BUE community. The idea was presented to Ms. Hanan El Sawdawi, the head of student activities and welfare department and she has approved it on spot.
SocialWave Activities (SWA) "Uniqueness and Elegance are Our Signature", SocialWave Activities (SWA) is a non-profit, student-based activities organization in The British University in Egypt,Objectives of SocialWave :

The Society of Electrical Engineers (SEE) Society of Electrical Engineers Logo.png On October 19, 2010, a group of students occupied by the desire to improve our student community, and driven by the hope to see the development of the university and take the lead of higher education in Egypt, have come to the decision of creating a Society of Electrical Engineers (SEE) that would serve as an independent student body, composed exclusively of electrical engineering students from the British University in Egypt, and organized by them and for them.
Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE - BUE) As future civil engineers, students should rightly be exposed to a wide array of international organisations that can help them build their knowledge and experience and prepare them for their future careers.

The ICE Student Chapter Committee, based within the British University in Egypt (BUE), aims help to create "complete" civil engineers. These are civil engineers who will carry out their future careers to a high technical standard, but will also be guided by a sound knowledge of social responsibility.
