Above all, Kazan is interested in academic exchanges and joint scientific researches. It's worth mentioning that the basis for this cooperation exists for quite a long time. Center of Ararbic culture of Kazan Federal University has been functioning since 1999.
Twenty students from Kazan visited the language courses in Egypt over the last year. Unfortunately, there are not so many students in the reverse direction. Ilshat Gafurov claimed that the university wanted to switch to the better level of exchange and joint postgraduate programs had to be launched for that reason.
The proposal of the Rector of KFU supposes the research of the PhD student with the involvement of two scientific tutors from Russia and Egypt.

KFU priority areas are the following:

Oil extraction, Refining and Petrochemistry
Infocommunications and Aerospace Technologies

The main efforts of the University are focused on the development of these priority areas and necessary infrastructure, including 300 laboratories.
