The Head of the Industrial Automation Department Dr. Hisham el-Sherif stated that the GUC Faculty of Engineering and Materials Science aims to organize such exhibitions after the end of each semester, to train students to apply what they have studied. The main aim is to provide them with the skills necessary to manage future projects and to arm them with the necessary tools to achieve success. Dr. El-Sherif pointed out that the faculty’s fundamental and academic role is to qualify and prepare cadres to achieve sustainable economic development and to provide executable and practical projects that fit the local and international market needs.
