At the Heart of the Knowledge City at the New Administrative Capital, The Ministry of Communications and Information Technology established EUI, in collaboration with the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, to be the first specialized university in Communications and Information Technology and their affected fields across the Middle East and Africa.
As a non-profit ICT specialized university, EUI seeks to create a specialized ICT community and equip young people with digital skills to fill in-demand jobs in local, regional, and international labor markets. Establishing EUI is part of MCIT's efforts to build an integrated information society and support the growth of the ICT sector in the New Administrative Capital. In appreciation of EUI's potential role in producing high calibers of ICT professionals, the Former President of Egypt, Counsellor Adly Mansour, accepted to chair the University Board of Trustees, consisting of highly reputable members from the academia, ICT industry, media, and public figures.
