Electrical and Computer Engineering Bachelor's degree

Higher Technology Institute

In the nineteen eighties a group of Egyptian nationals comprising former senior officials, educators, businessmen & industrialists formed the foundation of new urban communities, a non-profit Organization, aimed at helping the government & the private sector in reclaiming the vast desert areas of Egypt, The group soon recognized the need for engineering education of a special nature that would be located in the new urban communities & geared at satisfying the needs of the growing industrialization & construction efforts in these communities.

 In 1988 the higher technological institute (HTI) opened its doors to new students as the first private university level institute for engineering educational in Egypt The new Institute was born strong and grew quickly in quality and reputation. Now, more than twenty years after its inception it has become the most sought after private engineering institute in the country.
