The New Way to think. plan. act.


What We Do

MIE is acting as a networking hub between industrial entities, and academic institutions. All activities running in MIE are towards those two sides by:

Searching

for industrial entities with needs and willingness to sponsor undergraduate teams, and make sure that there will be real added value to the both parties.

Linking

those companies to teams with a specific level of capabilities and skills.

Supporting

the teams to carry out their graduation project.

Organizing

special/ customized training for students to some of non-technical skills that they might lack.

Connecting

the project’s sponsor company and linking them to the academic partner presented in the supervising professor.

Partnering

with entities that have similar vision/programs to support IUL, and innovation in Egypt.

Who We Are

Made In Egypt or MIE is a University-Industry linkage program founded and organized by IEEE Egypt YP affinity group, that aims at bridging the gap between the academic community - including both research and educational sectors - and the industrial community. Our contribution lies mainly in creating suitable models of cooperation between both communities that enrich the national industry and production and lift up the academic standards to create a better impact on the industrial and economical development in Egypt. MIE has been organizing Made In Egypt (MIE) Undergraduates Competition since 2005 where students from all over the Egyptian Engineering universities compete with their peers with their graduation projects. The target is to bring the best out of them and to make use of these projects by helping the students to link their projects to the real needs of the industrial world. MIE is holding this competition for the 9th year in a row. Having positively influenced the ideology that the industry can get its solution from the university, MIE in its 12nd round for the academic year 2016-2017 is now focusing on bringing out the best quality possible for prototypes that students implement as their graduation products


Our History

The competition module was initially benchmarked against a similar program at the University of Florida and has been held for 12 years in form of Competition with a goal to create a link between the industry and university through graduation projects of the senior year students in Engineering & Computer Science universities. A project to be admitted to the MIE Competition, it has to be sponsored by a non-Academic organization and the team of students have to solve an industrial problem or introduce a new product to the market

Over our 12 years of running the program, the MIE model has been changing from year to year according to the dynamic market perspective, and constant change of the industrial and academic communities to cope with the new needs and requirement from both sides.
