Nile University is a non-governmental and non-profit university and the first of its kind in Egypt. It was officially established in January 2007 in order to create a tech-based knowledge generation platform to help streamline Egyptian youth with the global innovation and science community. Nile University believes that the role of the University should not be limited to awarding academic degrees and conducting research, but just as importantly, to raising awareness in the community and providing opportunities to enjoy culture to extend the impact of the University on the Community as a whole.
