The New Way to think. plan. act.
To participate in Enriching the national industry and production by shedding light on Research and Development capabilities in Egyptian universities to tackle real industrial needs and problems, foster business-oriented results, and develop prototypes for new products with the signature Made In Egypt.
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:
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.
those companies to teams with a specific level of capabilities and skills.
the teams to carry out their graduation project.
special/ customized training for students to some of non-technical skills that they might lack.
the project’s sponsor company and linking them to the academic partner presented in the supervising professor.
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 14th year in a row. Having positively influenced the ideology that the industry can get its solution from the university, MIE in its 14th round for the academic year 2018-2019 is now focusing on bringing out the best quality possible for prototypes that students implement as their graduation products
The competition module was initially benchmarked against a similar program at the University of Florida and has been held for 14 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
We succeeded in attracting 9 universities, they participated with 34 projects.
130 teams registered, 66 sponsored teams were admitted to the competition this year from 20 different universities.
One of MIE Finalists – "Smart Breadboard" team –got the 1st place in the finals of Idea to Product “I2P” global competition. Finals were between 4 Teams from USA, Germany, Denmark and Egypt. Some of the participants were PhDs level VS our fresh graduated Egyptian engineers.
The number of universities is 31, participated with 257 projects.
Two of the participant projects won the 1st and 2nd place in the finals of Idea to Product “I2P” global competition.
The number of universities is 29, participated with 114 projects.
The number of universities is 27, participated with 146 projects.
The number of universities is 21, participated with 142 projects.
Over our 14 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.
