Elsewedy Technical Academy, Egypt

We have long drawn attention to the need for quality technical education in Egypt and the wider region. Not only is there a chronic skills gap, with a disconnect between business needs and the current education system, but technical education suffers from a poor reputation among young people, many of whom are deterred by rising costs. As a result we founded the Elsewedy Technical Academy (STA) in 2011.

STA provides a three-year, secondary level technical education in electrical skills to international standard. All our training programs follow the German approach of academic learning combined with training on site in factories.

Our vision is to establish STA among the world’s most outstanding technical education institutions. We aim to create a pool of highly qualified graduates. The inclusion of on-the-job training smooths the transition from the undergraduate environment to the demands of the job market. Facilities include:


  • A large campus with ample green space
  • Digital-ready classrooms of 16 students
  • State-of-the-art laboratories (fluidics & drive, automation & PLC)
  • Conference hall
  • Auditorium
  • Tablets for distance-learning
  • Online simulations
  • Ergonomically designed desks
  • Interactive smart boards
  • A digital library

Students can rely on a close mentoring system of highly engaged teachers and supervisors. Based on the success of our first academy, we plan to roll out the concept internationally once we have secured the involvement of another industry partner.
