Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) established the Tokyo Tech Egypt E-JUST Office in April 2014. This is the fourth overseas office established by Tokyo Tech. The other three are the Thailand Office (Bangkok), the Philippines Office (Manila), and the China Office (Beijing).
The Egypt-Japan University of Science and Technology (E-JUST) was established in 2009 by the Egyptian government with the collaboration of Japan. Tokyo Tech, as a supporting university for three out of the eight graduate programs offered at E-JUST, actively cooperated in the project to establish E-JUST. Tokyo Tech has been providing support as a primary contributing university since February 2014.
In April 2014, in order to strengthen the support system for the project, the Tokyo Tech Egypt E-JUST Office in Alexandria and the Egypt E-JUST Office Team were established under the Management Committee for Overseas Offices in the International Office at Tokyo Tech.
While the central task of the Tokyo Tech Egypt E-JUST Office is to support the faculty and students dispatched from Tokyo Tech to Egypt, the office also assists with activating academic exchanges between Egypt and Tokyo Tech and serves as a base for Tokyo Tech's public relation activities in the Arab-Africa region. The members of the Tokyo Tech Egypt E-JUST Office Team are faculty members who are deeply involved in the E-JUST project and the activities of the Tokyo Tech Egypt E-JUST Office.
