About this company

Zewail City
Zewail City of Science and Technology is a nonprofit, independent institution of learning, research and innovation. The concept of the City was proposed in 1999 and its cornerstone laid on January 1, 2000. After numerous delays, the project was revived by the Egyptian cabinet's decree on May 11, 2011 following the January 25 Revolution. The Cabinet proclaimed it a National Project for Scientific Renaissance and named it Zewail City of Science and Technology. On December 20, 2012, a special law for Zewail City was granted, allowing students to enroll at its university and Egypt to begin a new era of modern development in scientific research and technological production.

In 2014, former Egyptian President Adly Mansour issued a presidential decree granting the City a new campus on a 200-acre premises in the October Gardens of 6th of October City. This was followed by an order from President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi to build the new campus by the Engineering Authority of the Armed Forces. Construction at the new location is proceeding at a steady pace; and when completed, the inauguration of this National Project will be honored by the presence of the Egyptian president and the City’s Supreme Advisory Board members. Zewail City has successfully moved to the new campus at Ahmed Zewail Road, October Gardens, 6th of October City.
