EGT Academy is a state-of-the-art Occupational Academy established in a Strategic Alliance between Siemens Energy S.A.E and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) on behalf of the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), aimed at enriching Egypt’s talent pool of Technicians and Engineers. The 36,000 m2 Facility is strategically located in Ain Sokhna Egypt - Suez Canal Industrial Cluster (SIDC) – and is set to support the country’s economic growth in the Suez Canal Zone; while supplying Egypt’s prospective industrial expansion with the needed skilled workforce.
Built within Siemens Service and Repair Facility, the Academy will give way for an optimum Dual-Vocational approach, where trainees are able to experience real-life hands-on situations, complimenting both theoretical and practical aspects.
With two main “industry-specific” domains, the Academy focuses on Energy and Industry Automation alongside basic Mechanical, Electrical, and Automation engineering as “Formative” training. The program aims to qualify both Engineers and Technicians, from beginner level, all the way through to an established professional level.
In collaboration with its Network Partners, EGT Academy will provide innovative, global standard learning and education solutions across Egypt, still at accessible prices.
The EGT Academy offers training in two main sectors; encompassing both Energy and Industry Automation sectors, as two separate “Industry-specific” schools. The Academy adopts a modular curriculum approach, whereas programs are structured around a series of customizable learning modules or sequences, facilitating a more flexible and personalized learning environment.
Considered as ground level or “Formative” stream, EGT Academy offers training in the areas of basic mechanical, electrical and automation engineering, including interdisciplinary domains such as: Digitalization, soft skill development and data analytics, etc. Trainees are encouraged to partake in ground-level/foundation training, in order to meet the necessary qualification to advance into either one of EGT Academy’s Industry-specific schools. Programs at the Academy can range from a short few-day courses to a yearlong educational program.
EGT Academy sets the standard for high-level industrial Education and Training in Egypt and the region; raising the competence of Technicians and Engineers through market-oriented occupational training that meets global standards and continuously responds to the market demand for the enhancement of both employability and employment.
