A national university founded on an Egyptian — Japanese partnership
The advancements taking place in Egypt’s education sector will have a direct impact on the country’s future.
Supported by the Japan International Cooperation Agency, Egypt’s flagship research university, the Egypt-Japan University of Science and Technology (E-JUST), represents the close partnership between Egypt and Japan.
Celebrating 10 years this year, E-JUST is an academic benchmark for Egypt and African countries.
“We intend to become a well-recognized university in the Middle East, Africa and Europe and also play a role in Japan-Africa relations,” said professor Ahmed El-Gohary, E-JUST president.
Close to Borg El-Arab International Airport, E-JUST is located in the heart of Egypt’s industrial region.
“We promote closer links between industry and education, as productivity, efficiency, science and technology will play important roles in Egypt’s future,” said El-Gohary.
“By working in partnership with our Japanese friends, we want to add value to Egypt’s efforts to become a knowledge-based economy. We look forward to the future and the strengthening of dialogue between Japan and the Arab world.”
