Posted November 01, 2019 18:30:59In a country where nearly a third of the population lives below the poverty line, students from the University of Maryland are increasingly looking to the world beyond the classroom.
In the years since Egypt launched a new academic program, students have gone to work in the fields of physics, chemistry, mathematics and engineering, often working alongside their fellow Egyptians.
But the field of mathematics has also seen a rapid expansion in recent years, and has become a major focus for academics in Egypt.
In recent years Egypt has also made significant strides in the field, and the number of mathematics students has jumped to around 700,000.
A new program was launched by the government to encourage the young people to pursue their careers in mathematics.
But, the university says it still has many more students than it can recruit.
“The number of graduates of our graduate program is now over 300,000, but the number is growing,” said Dr Hani Fadl al-Mabrouk, the vice chancellor of mathematics at the University.
“There are also a lot of students who are interested in engineering, science and technology.”
The new program, known as the Science of Mathematics, aims to help Egypt build its science and maths skills and create the new generation of scientists and engineers.
Dr al-Din al-Sadi, the head of the Science and Mathematics Department at the Egyptian Academy of Sciences, said the new program had helped to create an environment where people could be encouraged to pursue academic careers.
“We’ve been very successful with the science and mathematics programs, and we’ve been successful in bringing in people from different disciplines,” he said.
“In many cases, people come from engineering, physics, engineering, computer science, computer engineering, biology, medicine and other disciplines.”
The university is trying to encourage a new generation to pursue mathematics and science careers, but many of its students are from outside of the country.
“Many people from outside the country come here and study here,” Dr al-Sabri said.
“So, we’ve created a very good environment.”
The science program, which is taught by a faculty of around 400 students, has also helped Egypt develop a robust online learning community.
“This is something that has not been possible before in Egypt,” Dr Fadll said.
“We have to learn from other countries and we need to have the tools and the knowledge that we need for doing mathematics and sciences.”
But, it also creates an environment in which the university can attract students from other disciplines to study here, and it helps them to take on the technical challenges that come with being a scientist or a mathematician.
