Research at NU

Vision and Mission

Nile University (NU) is a world class research-based learning institution committed to excellence in Education and Research. NU was officially inaugurated in January 2007 as a research university for postgraduate studies. The Research strategy is divided into:

1. Short Term: Build a generation of researchers with degrees of knowledge and proficiency.

2. Middle Term: Strengthen the research collaboration with different universities nationally and in the MENA region.

3. Long Term: To be the focal point in the region for scientific research, with which foreign universities seek to cooperate.


The main missions of the Research Office, Nile University can be summarized as follows:

  • Involving the undergraduate/postgraduate programs into the concept of: “Research-based Learning”.
  • Help attract & develop a critical mass of highly qualified researchers with national/international collaboration in multi-disciplinary fields.
  • Improve the knowledge transfer process, enhance the research profile and highlight the research outcomes aligned with the university ranking systems.
  • Support, manage and attract technology driven grants.

Research at Nile University targets areas and challenges of strategic importance to the nation and aiming to drive growth for technology-driven economies in Egypt and the region.
