why asu
Why ASU..!?
  • Extensive experience in conducting research and training programs on disease vectors.
  • National and international scientific collaborations.
  • Excellent bilingual (Arabic-English) teaching and communications. Most suitable for students belonging to 19 out of 22 EMR countries.
  • Easy access to natural habitats of disease vectors.
  • Relatively low costs of studying and living in Cairo.
obstacles
Obstacles..!!!

Administration:

  • Enrollment in MSc programme requires BSc in Entomology.
  • Taught MSc courses do not fulfill the approaches to tackle

major vector borne disease problems at national and global level.

Finance:

Shortage of funds to cover:

  • Training new generation of national technicians and students.
  • Maintenance and upgrading of research and training facilities.
  • Visits of international experts
