"My invitation to participate in the series of webinars that Nile University is keen to present to undergraduates was a rich experience, not only for the good organization and the integrated program, especially in scientific research, but also for the student's interaction and their eagerness to benefit. It is an honor to be among this wonderful constellation of guest professors. These experiences and expertise push Nile University to be among the top Egyptian Universities."

Dr. Mohammed ElSheemy

Professor of Urology, Cairo University Editor in Chief, African Journal of Urology


"I believe Biotechnology School will help me in my career path because it provides us with training opportunities and courses unavailable at other universities. We don't need to look for these opportunities because the university makes them readily available. These opportunities are essential to kickstarting a good career. My friends who study biotechnology at other universities don't have such opportunities."

Rafayel Remon

Biotechnology School Student


"I really appreciate that our first year at the School was building a strong base through general courses like chemistry and physics. It is also obvious to me through the course content and the projects that the professors and instructors chosen for us are experienced researchers in the field."

Kamal Salah

Biotechnology School Student


"In my experience, the biotechnology curriculum at NU is genuinely the best in Egypt, and it has the potential to bring up the best biotechnologists in the field. Since the bioinformatics curriculum is available at the NU's School of Information Technology and Computer Science and the School of Biotechnology, it provides students with a high-quality, interdisciplinary educational experience, which is not available elsewhere. This approach sets the students up to have the best of both worlds."
