Introduction:

Egypt-Japan University of Science and Technology (E-JUST) is a research university with the ambition to cultivate an academic environment and become a benchmark for the Egyptian and African countries in education. It was first established as a bilateral agreement project between the Egyptian and Japanese governments in May 2009 and later in 2010 it was ready to accept its first batch of students and make the dream a reality.

Both governments have a strong relation where they both divide the cooperation cohesively to ensure positive results. The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) fully supports EJUST by sending their administrative and academic experts for assisting and guiding in the technical and management system of the university, as well as sending academic experts from the Japanese Supporting University Consortium (JSUC) to support in teaching, conduct join research and co-supervising the graduate students. In addition to providing high level technology of machines, equipment and tools for research purposes. As for the Egyptian government, it fully runs the university financially and is administered by Egyptian members for both the academic and administrative staff.

All decisions that govern the university are done through its Board of Trustees (BOT) members whom are composed of 15 prominent figures from Egypt and Japan. They represent stakeholders from the government, academic and industrial field from both countries.
