In this work, the interval generalized coupled matrix equations \begin{equation*} \sum_{j=1}^{p}{{\bf{A}}_{ij}X_{j}}+\sum_{k=1}^{q}{Y_{k}{\bf{B}}_{ik}}={\bf{C}}_{i}, \qquad i=1,\ldots,p+q, \end{equation*} are studied in which ${\bf{A}}_{ij}$, ${\bf{B}}_{ik}$ and ${\bf{C}}_{i}$ are known real interval matrices, while $X_{j}$ and $Y_{k}$ are the unknown matrices for $j=1,\ldots,p$, $k=1,\ldots,q$ and $i=1,\ldots,p+q$. This paper discusses the so-called AE-solution sets for this system. In these types of solution sets, the elements of the involved interval matrices are quantified and all occurrences of the universal quantifier $\forall$ (if any) precede the occurrences of the existential quantifier $\exists$. The AE-solution sets are characterized and some sufficient conditions under which these types of solution sets are bounded are given. Also some approaches are proposed which include a numerical technique and an algebraic approach for enclosing some types of the AE-solution sets.
