Amr is a mechanical engineer and wanted to further develop his knowledge. He works as an engineer in a private factory. To get a better job, he needs new knowledge in the field of electrical engineering. He found a suitable training course offered by the Egyptian-German Center for Jobs, Migration and Reintegration (EGC) in Cairo.
The course was held at the Siemens Energy Egypt Service Center on the outskirts of Cairo. There Amr improved his skills in installing and operating small computers. In technical language, these devices are called "stand-alone controllers". They are used in a large number of electrical appliances and function as control devices.
