Cairo University ( _ar. جامعة القاهرة, previously "Egyptian University" and later "Fuʾād I University") is an institute of higher education located in Giza, Egypt. The university was founded on December 21, 1908, as the result of an effort to establish a national center for educational thought. Several constituent colleges preceded the establishment of the university including the College of Engineering ( _ar. كلية الهندسة) in 1816, which was shut down by Muhammad Said Pasha in 1854. Cairo University was founded as a European-inspired civil university, in contrast to the religious university of al-Azhar, and became the prime indigenous model for other state universities in the region.Cairo University includes a School of Law and a School of Medicine. The Medical School, also known as "Kasr Alaini" ( _ar. قصر العيني, Qasr-ul-'Ayni), was one of the first medical schools in Africa and the Middle East. Its first building was donated by Alaini Pasha. Since then it has undergone extensive expansion.
