Egypt's Minya is Gearing Up for Innovation Day 7

Taking off on April 2, Innovation Day is an opportunity to connect engineering graduates with undergraduates, while both scout resources to start their careers.

Upper Egypt’s biggest technological and entrepreneurial event, Innovation Day 7 is taking off on April 2nd, stretching out for two days at Minya University’s Faculty of Engineering. This year the organisers, IEE Minia Student Branch, are focusing on urbanisation as a changing point in the lives of Minya’s people in terms of new careers, energy, food, and transportation.

Supporting students to work on their projects as a startup tackling a social problem, the seventh edition of the event will be composed of six major activities, an exhibition showcasing more than 250 graduation projects and startups, and is expected to host over 5,000 attendees, representing a massive boost from last year’s Innovation Day, which hosted about 3,000 attendees, 14 talks, eight workshops, six sessions, and an exhibition showcasing 45 graduation projects.

The event aims to prepare engineering students for innovative entrepreneurship in order to revive the community through activities such as project fair, talks, workshops and interactive engineering games as well as a Startup Exhibition. Innovation Day looks to expand the startup community in Minya and Upper Egypt, as well as becoming the bridge between graduates, undergraduates, and the resources both of them need to start their career.

Throughout the event, the IEEE's Minia Student Branch will provide a mentorship program for fourth year students in the Faculty of Engineering. They also provide project-based learning programs for second and third years to keep students in touch with the most relevant tools such as Solidworks, Labview, Matlab, and let them focus on a specific track.
