The innovation hub aims to expand in the coming years to serve as many students and researchers as possible, participating in new projects that enhance undergraduates’ skills and qualify them for the industry. We plan to push the developing startups to launch their projects and continue to help them develop their prototypes till they have their first product launched.
The innovation hub also plans to maximize its research output by organizing the efforts into the innovation hub academy initiative. This initiative aims to pass the knowledge from the hub’s researchers to the undergraduates through study groups, research groups, and internships.
The Nile University’s innovation hub role is rooted in the University’s four main pillars; academic pillar, research pillar, industrial and entrepreneurial pillar, and community service pillar.
The hub welcomes all undergraduates, postgraduates, researchers and young entrepreneurs. The innovation hub was established to assist the undergraduates with their course projects and researchers with their experimental work. Currently, the hub assists senior students with their graduation projects and is having its research projects in progress.
Recently expanding to help students with their startup ideas providing them with technical support to develop their prototypes. The innovation hub also welcomes high school students to guide them towards finishing their year’s projects as a part of its services provided to the community.
Moreover, Innovation Hub is offering its services to the industry; prototyping services and PCB manufacturing services are available in the innovation hub prototyping labs as a part of the labs' mission toward the local industry and the national economy.
