Heritage is more than monuments. It is the living memory of the nation and a resource for social and economic development. Heritage includes all the manifestations that have survived from the past, ranging from temples, mosques, monasteries to historical houses, and from proverbs, artworks and tales to musical performances, and festivals.

The program is designed to enable graduates to mobilize such resources for social and economic benefits.

UFE has won an international competition to train the staff of the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization, and is a partner in the International Erasmus program in Museum studies.
