The Egyptian Chinese University (ECU) is a private university located in Cairo, Egypt. The decision about its establishment was issued by a presidential Creed number 118 in 2013, for students to start studies in the academic year 2016/2017.

ECU is the only Chinese university in Egypt and the Middle East which represents an integrated project that copes with the knowledge era of the third millennium. ECU and Beijing Jiao Tong University (BJTU) signed a new agreement to develop the academic, scientific, Research and Development, and technological exchange that support small and medium industries in China and Egypt in April 2016.

In 2019, ECU won first prize in the second Scientific Day Competition at Badr University in Cairo. In the same year, the Chinese ambassador inaugurated the language and phonics lab donated by China in ECU.

ECU provides a central library which contains recent books, databases, more than two thousand scientific references and information services to students. Its library also provides off-campus access to all electronic resources and catalogues to support independent study via the library website. ECU campuses provide a computer laboratory and scientific laboratories to its students.

The university has a clinic which attends to health needs of its staff and students, not living out a cafeteria.  There is also the presence of a gymnasium for exercises and sports, as well as other sporting activities such as football court, law tennis and other indoor playgrounds.

Cairo, known in Arabic as Al-Qāhirah (The Victorious), is the capital of Egypt and one of the largest cities in Africa. The city is more than 1,000 years old, existing on the banks of the Nile throughout all that time.

Cairo, known in Arabic as Al-Qāhirah (The Victorious), is the capital of Egypt and one of the largest cities in Africa. The city is more than 1,000 years old, existing on the banks of the Nile throughout all that time. It is the gateway to the Nile delta, where the lower Nile separates into the Rosetta and Damietta branches.

The City was founded by the Fatimid Dynasty in 969 AD and has survived both the Bubonic Plague and several occupations by invaders. The City came under the Ottoman rule in the 16th Century, but by the early 18th Century it came under the control of Muhammad Ali Pasha, who founded the dynasty that ruled in Egypt until the 1952 Egyptian Revolution.

Cairo experienced rapid growth throughout all this turmoil, emerging as a political and economic hub for North Africa and the Arab World. The city was the theatre of the 2011 Egyptian Revolution against Hosni Mubarak.

Cairo’s has a hot desert climate with annual average temperatures between 27 and 15 degrees Celsius respectively, experiencing frequent windstorms from March to May, with little rainfall throughout the year, mostly during winter. The weather is hot in the summer and chilly in winter.

The warmer temperatures in the spring season are sometimes accompanied by the Khamaseen, a hot, dry wind from the south which fills the air with fine dust.

Cairo is part of the largest metropolitan area in Africa, Greater Cairo. With a population of over 9 million, the city is the centre of the region’s political and cultural life. It has the oldest and largest film and music industries in the Middle East and North Africa.

It has Opera houses and hosts the annual Cairo International Film Festival. It is home to several international media and organisations. The Arab League has been headquartered in the City for most of its existence.

Cairo accounts for 11% of Egypt’s population and 22% of its economy, with most of the nation’s commerce generated within its walls. Its economy ranks first in the Middle East. On the flipside, like many other megacities, Cairo suffers from high levels of pollution and traffic.

Cairo is a prime example of hyper-urbanization – its constant growth has sometimes surpassed the capacity of city services. It is a megacity in every sense of the word. Its metro ranks among the 15 busiest metros in the world. This rapid expansion creates a constant need for new infrastructure in the city.

The city boasts an extensive road network – facilitated by personal vehicles, taxi cabs, privately owned public buses and Cairo microbuses – as well as a rail system, a subway system and maritime services. It is the centre of almost the entire Egyptian transportation network.

Plans for the construction of two monorail systems were announced in 2017 in a bid to cater to the ever-growing transportation demands. Cairo International Airport is one of the largest in Africa. The city is home to several historical sites and landmarks like Tahrir Square, the Egyptian Museum, Cairo Tower and Old Cairo.

The Islamic architecture available in Cairo is counted as one of the greatest concentrations of historical monuments in the world. The areas around the Citadel are characterised by hundreds of mosques, tombs, madrasas, mansions, caravanserais and fortifications dating from the Islamic era, and are often referred to as Islamic Cairo.

The city is the hub of Egypt’s medical sector, boasting the most advanced healthcare facilities in the country. It is fertile ground for education as well, with the largest number of universities and higher institutes in Egypt.

Cairo is the birthplace of the Arab League, a regional organisation in the Arab World whose main goal is “to draw closer the relations between member states and co-ordinate collaboration between them, to safeguard their independence and sovereignty, and to consider in a general way the affairs and interests of the Arab countries”.

Positioned as the headquarters of the Arab League, Cairo is at the nexus of the MENA regional block; it stands to reason that it has over the years become the centre of the regions political and cultural life.

The population of Cairo is predominantly Muslim, although it used to be ethnically and religiously diverse. This is evidenced by the remnants of old Italian, Greek, Syrian and Sudanese Communities still found in the same locations.

Half of the city’s population lives in the city proper, with the other half living in the suburbs, and the difference in status within the Egyptian population depends largely on one’s place of origin, class and degree of modernity.

Cairo’s economy is largely based on governmental functions, trade, commerce and industrial production. Since the 1952 revolution, large-scale industrialization has established itself in the city, built on the foundations laid by previous developments in textile and food processing.

Egypt, in general, is famous for its long-staple cotton, which is a hallmark of Cairo’s textile industry, and the fertile delta provides the food processing plants with a wide variety of fruits and vegetables for canning and freezing. Also, Cairo counts iron and steel, consumer goods, and appliances manufacturing factories.

The city is the country’s primary centre for economic production and financial control; it contains many of Egypt’s more important banks and hotels, as well as restaurants and other entertainment venues.

Cairo is regarded as a student city thanks to the presence of some of the most prestigious African universities in the city. Al-Azhar University, for example, is the chief centre of Islamic and Arabic learning in the world, and it is found in Cairo.

The University of Cairo on its part boasts perhaps the largest number of graduates and specialized professionals in the country, including doctors, lawyers and engineers.

Private-run universities as well carry a certain appeal, for example, the Future University in Egypt, Badr University in Cairo, the American University in Cairo and the German University in Cairo.  All of these contribute to Cairo’s appeal as a prime venue for education, attracting more and more students from across the world.

The cost of living in Cairo tends to be generally high, especially in the city centre. However, for students there exist a number of affordable options, be it for restaurants, markets, utilities or transportation, as well as sports and leisure.

On average the monthly cost of living for a single person is 6000 Egyptian pounds, without rent. Rent goes for about 3500 EG £ in the city centre, and 1800 EG £ outside of the city centre.

Cairo is home to prime cultural events and festivals. The Cairo International Film Festival, for example, is a renowned cultural attraction. The Cairo Opera House as well stands as a prominent cultural feature in Cairo. The city is an enticing prospect for students looking to discover life in a megacity that is constantly growing.
