President of the Egypt-Japan University of Science and Technology visited Ritsumeikan

On the 7th October, Tuesday, President, Vice President for Research, Vice President for International Affairs, and related representatives of Egypt-Japan University of Science and Technology (E-JUST) located in Alexandria, Egypt, visited Biwako Kusatsu Campus. They visited laboratories of Prof. Sadao Kawamura, Associate Prof. Takashi Minemoto, as well as the new engineering-oriented facility “Tricea”, and SR (Synchtron Radiation) center. They were impressed by the cutting-edge technology of Ritsumeikan research activities and the way it is incorporated in education effectively.

Ritsumeikan has been supporting E-JUST since its inauguration in 2010 for university strategy and organization management. We received 10 administrative staff from E-JUST in 2012, and conducted workshop to develop collaboration between academic and administrative staff in 2013 at E-JUST.

Ritsumeikan and E-JUST will continuously build a stronger relationship and promote Japanese style engineering education and research in Egypt.
