The Egypt-Japan University of Science and Technology (E-Just) aims to function as a world class centre of excellence for higher education and research, a senior academic told this newspaper Wednesday.
“The Regional and International Affairs Office implements E-JUST’s strategy of dealing with regional and international opportunities encountered by our students,” the university’s Vice-President for Regional and International Affairs, Professor Suzuki Masaaki, told The Egyptian Gazette.
“It is dedicated to enhancing global relations and visibility and building strong relationships with international institutions,” he added.
Professor Masaaki noted that the College of Engineering at E-Just has firm ties with Waseda University, Kyushu University, Tokyo Institute of Technology and Kyoto University, where more than 200 PhD students spent between six and nine months during their stay at these universities as researchers supervised jointly by Egyptian and Japanese professors.
“E-JUST works to achieve its vision by forming international alliances and opening doors to international students,” Professor Masaaki said, adding that the university welcomes students from Africa and the Middle East.
The university receives applicants from 34 countries where students want to benefit from the high educational standards it offers.
“Our students enjoy an international learning environment that supports research and innovation,” Professor Masaaki said.
