In 1987, the name of Amal Al-Kahlout was present in the list of the names of the high school graduates in Palestine, and she received two scholarships, one in Egypt and the other in the West Bank. The second scholarship was to study engineering, so she chose the place and refused to specialize, so she began studying physics at Birzeit University, but Things did not go as planned. Shortly after the start of the study, the first intifada erupted, so she had to leave the university and decided to take advantage of the scholarship she had obtained in Egyptian universities, so she returned to Gaza to obtain coordination.

In 1992, Dr. Amal obtained a bachelor’s degree in physics, then obtained a master’s degree from Britain in 1999, and obtained a doctorate from Germany in 2006. After graduating from her bachelor’s degree, she worked as a teaching assistant at Al-Azhar University in Gaza, and has been working since 2014 as Dean of the Faculty Science at Al-Azhar University, and is awaiting the arbitration of her research to obtain a professorship, and is conducting research on solar energy.
