Ain Shams University is the third oldest university in Egypt. Founded in July 1950 as Ibrahim Pasha University. Collaborated with the other two universities. Cairo University (Fouad El Basha University) and Alexandria University (Farouk I University) to achieve the University's goals and accept the increasing number of applicants.
After the revolution of 23 July 1952, the three universities were proposed after the historic places in Egypt. Thus, on February 21, 1954, the name of the university was changed to Heliopolis. In the same year Ain Shams Ain changed its name, or the Arabic translation of Heliopolis or Aoun. En University was founded 5000 years ago. She was really famous for being a cultural center of knowledge especially astrology, engineering and medicine. Amhotep was a teacher at that university. He was the principal Parson, the minister and designer who designed the first stone architecture known as Zoser in 2700 BC. The University logo consists of an obelisk and two hawks to symbol its name and its ancient history. The obelisk symbolizes the House of Life in the city of On (Ain Shams) and symbolizes the falcons to the house of the Egyptian god at the time. Ain Shams University is located in Qasr Al-Zaafran Palace (Al-Zaafran Palace) built in Khedive Ismail Rayen. The reason behind this name is that it was surrounded by fields of saffron. This palace was used as the administration of the university in 1925
