Shawky further explained the ten similar technical schools from different fields as industrial and agricultural have been launched. The aim is to change the stereotype of technical education in Egypt.

Admission to the school, located in Obour City, is open until mid-September for those who have a preparatory certificate from schools in Greater Cairo.

The Representative of Egypt Gold, Mostafa Nassar, explained that there is a lack of technicians specializing in the manufacturing of gold and jewelry. Students are required to attend the school six days a week, and take two theoretical and four practical courses. Students will receive a monthly salary to make study more sustainable.
