MIE made a difference by helping the participating teams to become more qualified regarding the market perspective than any other teams. MIE teams have interacted with the market and understand the market needs well which makes it easier for them to look for a job or start their own business. They are graduated with graduation projects with real market need which makes these projects useful not just for the team but for their university and sponsor.
You will have trainings on the most necessary soft skills and business skills throughout the year. You will also have a coordinator who will be with you throughout your journey in MIE.

It is not among the coordinator’s duties to support the team technically, however, he should help the team regarding the planning and coordination of the project. The coordinator may help the team technically if they are of the same field but this will be on a friendly basis without any obligation from MIE. Kindly refer to the team coordinator job description in this link:http://www.ieeegoldegypt.org/MIE/competition.aspx
An ethical dilemma is any situation in which guiding moral principles cannot determine which course of action is right or wrong. Imagine a young man who lives with his mother; he is her only happiness in life. But the young man lives in occupied France during World War II and feels obliged to fight in the war. What does the young man do?
Also engineers may encounter situations in which they must make judgment calls on ethical dilemmas. For example other ethical dilemmas involve engineers' responsibilities to when they are aware of unsafe products being marketed.
