Directly from the capital of Canada, the University of Ottawa is working with Egypt’s Ministry of Communications to roll out exclusive Master’s degree scholarships for electrical and computer engineers. No need to go shopping for fur coats - you’ll be safe from the freezing cold as the entire programme will take place online.

The programmes are part of the national ‘Digital Egypt Builders’ initiative. Renowned for its engineering programmes, University of Ottawa is one of Canada’s most popular institutions for would-be technicians and roboticists.

The first academic semester will begin in Spring 2021, with three available concentrations: ‘Artificial intelligence and data science’, ‘Robotics’, and ‘The Internet of Things and cybersecurity’.
