In 1970, United Nations Development Programme, UNDP recommended establishing AASTMT as a regional institute for transport in cooperation with International Maritime Consultancy Organization of Governments and the United Nations Conference for Trade and Development, UNCTAD. In 1979, AASTMT decided to set up an examination centre to qualify captains, deck officers and marine engineers to get the necessary competence certificates to work on board high seas ships. Over more than 30 years, AASTMT had many achievements in Egypt (Alexandria, Cairo and South of the Valley) in education, training and research in the fields of maritime transport, engineering and management sciences, through its colleges and centres, such as: College of Maritime Transport, College of Engineering, College of Computing and Technology, College of International Transport, College of Management, Integrated Simulators Complex.
