In 2009 the Alexandria Centre for Maritime Archaeology & Underwater Cultural Heritage was established as a European Union project under the EU-Tempus III Programme. The project aimed to create a specialized center for postgraduate studies which provides education and training at different levels in aspects of maritime and underwater archaeology, and to develop a Postgraduate Diploma and Master programmes in Maritime Archaeology and Underwater Cultural Heritage, designed and structured in accordance with EU standards.

The Centre offers a Postgraduate Diploma and Master of Arts degrees in Maritime Archaeology and Underwater Cultural Heritage, designed and structured in accordance with EU standards.

The programme aims to provide graduates from different backgrounds with a sound theoretical and methodological foundation in the investigation, interpretation, and management of the maritime and underwater archaeological resource within its wider context. Hence, participants in the programme would be provided with the basis for a professional career in this field or a sound foundation for further research.

The Foundation offers a scholarship to fund either one Diploma student (for one year), or one MA student (for two years). The Foundation will also fund additional travel costs for non-resident students. For more information contact Emad Khalil emadkhalil@alexu.edu.eg
