Egypt’s Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research announced, on Monday, that the New Cairo Technological University (NCTU) has completed preparations on several new laboratories and workshops.
The new facilities mean students at the university can access solar energy workshops, a mechatronics lab, and additional computer laboratories.
Khaled Abdel Ghaffar, Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, reviewed a report on the NCTU’s activities during the 2020-2021 academic year.
The report outlined that the university organised many training programmes for students at a number of different industrial bodies and institutions.
The report stated that the university also organised several weekly training visits for new students on the autotronics, mechatronics, new and renewable energy, information technology (UT), prosthetics, and prosthetic devices programmes.
The training programmes aim to keep students informed on various devices and equipment used within industrial institutions, and to improve the practical and scientific skills of the university’s graduates.
The report added that new technological programmes have been added, including the Production and Processing of Petroleum Products programme. This was set up in cooperation with the Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC) and the Egyptian Petroleum Research Institute (EPRI).
Other opportunities include the Technology Programme for Prosthesis and Orthotics, set up in cooperation with Orthomedics, one of the largest companies specialised in prosthetics in Egypt.
