Nile University (NU) is a world class research institution of learning committed to excellence in education and research. NU was officially inaugurated in January 2007 as a research university for postgraduate. Our Scientific research is based on five axes:

  1. Methodology based on research into the problems of Egyptian and Arab society and finding solutions.
  2. Providing the scientific research with permanent contact with the industrial sector and companies.
  3. Link scientific research to entrepreneurship and work on the development of innovation and creativity in the researcher.
  4. Create a generation of undergraduate students capable of performing scientific research with all its concepts and fundamentals.
  5. Helping startups improve their product and business model and prepare them to scale worldwide.

With the research strategy divided into three terms:

  1. Short Term: Build a generation of researchers with a degree of proficiency and science
  2. Mid Term: Strengthening research relations with local universities and the Middle East
  3. Long Term: To be a regional focal point for scientific research that foreign universities are seeking to cooperate with us.
  4. Create a generation of undergraduate students capable of performing scientific research with all its concepts and fundamentals.
  5. Helping startups improve their product and business model and prepare them to scale worldwide.

With the various research disciplines NU have 6 different research and training centers and an innovation & entrepreneurial center. Research at NU targets areas and challenges of strategic importance to the nation and to the region, aiming to drive growth for technology-driven economies.
