Nasser Higher Military Academy

Since the dawn of time, the Egyptian man is his true renewable fortune. Awareness is a degree of knowledge, and the Egyptian has gone through many events and crises, as well as different civilizations and cultures. All this has created a strange sense called collective awareness. From here came the idea and the importance of creating national awareness, because the land that does not have the power to protect it is coveted. Awareness of threats, challenges and all dangers is a force, a mighty force that works to align and unite in concepts to confront any danger, and since creating awareness was a goal of confrontation and national alignment, formation order No. 4/11/18/1808 was issued on April 12, 1964 regarding the establishment of Nasser Higher Military Academy, specializing in higher studies.

The Nasser Higher Military Academy was inaugurated on March 3, 1965, in the presence of the late leader / Gamal Abdel Nasser, and a teaching staff of Russian experts was formed for the Academy, and the study was limited to the Higher War College. In the beginning of the second session of the Higher War College in September 1966, the first session was held at the National Defense College.

The Study stopped at the Academy from June 1967 until December 1973, and its basic courses were postponed due to war conditions. During this period, short courses were held for senior officers of the armed forces. After the victory of October 1973, the study continued at the Academy, the Russian references were translated into Arabic, and the curricula were taught by an Egyptian teaching staff.

In 1975, the reception of students from the sisterly Arab countries and various friendly countries of the world began.
