Among the senior officials in the delegation were Berlin mayor Michael Müller, education and youth minister Sandra Scheres, and the mayor of the Reinickendorf district Frank Balzer.
The officials discussed with the university's leaders cultural and scientific ties between Egypt and Germany.
They also presented updates on the latest developments at the GUC campus in Berlin, inaugurated in 2013, as well as the GUC Solar City –the first project of its kind in the region, due to be inaugurated in April.
