“JICA” Official: Equipping E-JUST Laboratories with $28 Million
Motoharu Watanabe, head of advisors at the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), said that Japan has equipped the laboratories of the Egypt-Japan University of Science and Technology (E-JUST), in Alexandria, with the latest technological equipment, with a grant estimated at 28 million dollars.
He explained, in statements today, Monday, that the university has a scientific partnership with 13 universities in Japan, including Waseda University, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Kyoto University, and Kyushu University, as these universities are among the largest universities in Japan, in addition to the university’s cooperation with the corporate sector and industry.
He pointed out that the establishment of E-JUST was based on a double cooperation agreement between the Egyptian government and the Japanese government in 2009. Since its establishment, the Japanese government has supported E-JUST logistically as a research university. The university also has a distinguished admission examination system, which contributed to its students who are scientifically distinguished and have an enthusiasm for science and learning.
He said that JICA funds research projects and scientific programs at the university, in various fields, including electrical engineering, communications, robotics, electronics, computer engineering, industry and production, energy and mineral engineering, petrochemicals and petroleum.
He added, “The university provides opportunities for postgraduate and doctoral students to travel to Japan for a period of 9 months to study in Japanese universities and supervision over them will be shared by Egypt and Japan.”
