Egypt-Japan University of Science and Technology (E-JUST)

Background

The Egypt-Japan University of Science and Technology (E-JUST) opened in Alexandria in February 2010 as a JICA Technical Cooperation project. The missions of the university are as follows: to promote a Japanese style science and technology education in the Middle East and African countries, and to contribute to the development of human resources who will create new industries. So far E-JUST has received 77 postgraduate students in 8 engineering fields* and celebrated the first batch of MSc students in February 2012. (As of March 2012)

Ritsumeikan has, as a member of the Japanese University Committee, participated in ‘University strategy/organization management' working group meetings on a regular basis and provided suggestions and advice in order to strengthen the administrative structure of E-JUST.

In addition, Ritsumeikan was commissioned by JICA to conduct an ‘E-JUST administrative staff training' program on account of the university's experience in implementing ‘Human resource training programs for Inland regions of China (Special Program of University Management for Executives)'. To date, two trainings have been carried out in Japan.

E-JUST University Management and Administration (Staff training program)

The aim of the training is to build a base of university management to ensure E-JUST becomes a top-level science and technology university not only in the Middle East and African countries, but also in the world. The training is conducted using the knowledge and experience of Ritsumeikan in the fields of admission, scholarship policy, financial policy, collaboration between industry and academia, information system, career support, human resources policy, students support and library service.
