Funding and Duration:
Three years duration starting from October, 2010 till October, 2013 .
Project funding is 102 million Euros = 9.6 million EGP where it&rsquos AASTMT portion is 70,000 &euro = 560,000 EGP.
Prospective development:
1)    Establishment of Mechatronics lab by 216,000 EGP.
2)    Contribution between ASU, Helwan and Nile University for the development of 12 new courses leading to post-graduate studies in Mechatronics.
3)    Conventions for Dual master&rsquos Degree in Mechatronics engineering from AAST and other EU universities via MEDASTAR program. 
AES project outcomes to AASTMT
The impact and the benefit of the AES project to AASTMT is including:
1.    Development the links between AASTMT and Egyptian/International Universities along with the community/industry.
2.    Development of academic staff (e.g. national/international courses) 
3.    Establishment of Mechatronics lab & its development with Robotino and pneumatic System from SMC didactic costing 25,400 &euro (EUR) .
