NISC was established in 2009 to fill the technology gap between Egypt and the global electronics industry. The center aims to act like a passageway to transfer the Nanoelectronics technology from abroad to the Egyptian society. A master program was created to provide the graduate students with significant experience with the techniques and tools involved with Nanoelectronics integrated systems. The program objective is to prepare professional engineers in the Nanoelectronics field equipped with the right design tools.
NISC works to identify problems in the Egyptian society and work on solutions through designing electronics system and to contribute in saving Egypt a place in the global nanotechnology race. In the past few years the center started investing in hosting international conferences in Egypt as well as workshops to convey the latest technologies in the industry to engineers to improve their skills and knowledge. As a result, NISC started integrating other fields with electronics such us embedded systems, the internet of things (IoT) and some other emerging technologies.
