6435594334701479063 The report indicated that unique laboratories in their research equipment were established at the Institute of Basic and Applied Sciences at the university. A scientific center of excellence has been established with industrial partnership and funding from national and international bodies, the most important of which are the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology, and the Science and Technology Fund. .

Dr. explained. It is essential that the philosophy of establishing the Egyptian Japanese University is to use educational systems and Japanese academic concepts that are based on laboratory methods in learning and teaching based on research projects, noting that the university relies in its policy on making use of the Japanese model of active learning, based on experimentation, innovation and scientific research It is unique in academic specializations and study programs in modern sciences.

and drew d. Ahmed Abdel Moneim, Dean of the Institute of Basic and Applied Sciences, indicated that the institute owns (7) laboratories equipped with the latest technological devices in the world, including the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory for Space Applications in cooperation with the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology, where artificial intelligence and machine learning are used to monitor the space environment using satellite data. Industrial and ground stations, in addition to a physics laboratory for electronics applications, to control air pollutants for the purpose of conducting applied research on the development of new materials with high efficiency to get rid of nitrogen oxides and air pollutants, as well as the Center for Scientific Excellence for graphene and its applications in the fields of energy and electronics, which is considered the first center of its kind In Africa and the Middle East for the manufacture of flexible electronic devices, using 3D printers based on the use of graphene inks. 6435594334701479063 He added that there is an industrial catalysts laboratory, which is the first of its kind in Alexandria and the North Delta region; In order to fill the gap of urgent needs for the characterization, preparation and evaluation of the performance of catalysts used in the petrochemical industry, in addition to the Applied Mathematics and High-Performance Computing Laboratory for simulation and analysis services, as well as the Nanoscience Research Laboratory in the fields of energy and water treatment, the production of new materials for digital memory devices, and the Molecular Biology Research Laboratory.
