The Wireless Research Center
The Wireless Research Center at the Egypt-Japan University of Science and Technology aims at establishing a world-class cross-disciplinary research facility with close-ties to the industry, both at the national and international levels. We work on both basic and applied research in wireless networking and communications, their applications and their hardware implementations.
It contains three inter-related core groups covering different stages of wireless system development: Wireless Networking Group, Wireless Communications Group and Radio Frequency Design Group.
