    Dr. Salem adds that the ITI supports MCIT plan to link the Egyptian sector with the global innovation and entrepreneurship wheel. This is one of MCIT major priorities in the coming phase in a bid to increase job opportunities in this field.

    According to Dr. Mohamed Salem, the Egyptian exports of business process outsourcing (BPO) this year amount to over $ 1.3 billion. The target is to increase this sum to reach $2 billion by 2013, hoping that it could reach $10 billion by 2020. Every specialist generates an average of $30,000/year.

    Dr. Mohamed Salem stresses on his deep trust in the Egyptian youth capable of achieving a lot in this domain, providing an added value to the Egyptian economy. To achieve such a target, he says, the Egyptian youth need to exert extra effort to attract more investments to this sector that has already achieved extraordinary quantum leaps. By doing so, we can surpass such a critical stage, he makes clear.

    In the field of e-content, the first interactive prototype entitled “Think and Learn” is showcased. The e-content prototype aims at facilitating an integrated educational environment for 2nd year middle school students. This is to enable them to use planning, time management and information arrangement techniques.

    The prototype was tested at El-Tahrir Experimental School located in a remote village in Assiut. The results were presented before the teaching staff who praised their students’ experience.

This perspective is based on enabling graduates to implement their technological ideas and innovations in the form of projects and products to disseminate the culture of entrepreneurship under the slogan “Made at ITI.” These graduates will manage to establish their own companies and projects and compete in Egypt and internationally.

    ITI enables its top graduates to join major European and American universities that had entered into cooperation agreements and scientific partnerships with the Institute.
