Program Overview

The Information Technology Institute (ITI) received applications for the Train the Trainers (TTT) program in Artificial Intelligence (AI) provided by the French Graduate School of Computer Science and Advanced Technologies (EPITA).
The TTT program was conducted remotely in October 2020 certifying the first batch of qualified instructors to deliver the program to Egyptian calibers. The training was free and the selection process was conducted by the French partner institute according to the attached qualifications.

The EPITA-MCIT program of Artificial Intelligence is a joint post-graduate education program between the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) and the French Graduate School of Computer Science and Advanced Technologies (EPITA) and availed through the Information Technology Institute (ITI). The French school was responsible
to prepare the program curriculum customized to the Egyptian market needs. Thus, created a knowledge transfer program, through a TTT program for qualified instructors to further deliver the program.
