In 2011, the Egyptian Supreme Council of Universities approved the program as equivalent to its Egyptian counterparts. Accordingly, graduates the Architectural Engineering program at AUC receive a license to practice Architecture from the Egyptian Syndicate of Engineers, the sole authority for licensing the professional practice of Architecture in Egypt. This was renewed in 2017.
In 2013, The International Union of Architects validated the Architectural Engineering degree at AUC (UNESCO‐UIA validation). This was renewed in 2017.
