The Qualifying for Employment (Q4E) program has been launched by the Information Technology Industry Development Agency (ITIDA) to increase the talent pool and develop job skills in the design, development and production of semiconductors and embedded systems. This program is part of the “Egypt Makes Electronics” initiative (EME), launched in 2018, which aims to position the electronics industry as a key driver of growth in the Egyptian economy.

The Q4E program is designed to cater to the hiring needs and skills demand of electronic design, research and development (R&D), semiconductor manufacturing and embedded systems companies. ITIDA co-funds the program expenses to bridge the skills gap between supply and demand, whether implemented directly by enterprises or through training providers.
ITIDA hopes to encourage electronic design companies to expand their business and operations in Egypt, attract more investment and enterprises to the Egyptian market, create more job opportunities in the IT sector and ultimately increase Egypt’s digital exports, which were valued at USD 4.9 billion in 2022.
