Miscellaneous announcements

The Euromed University of Fez has installed in the premises of the technical high school of Fez and put into operation a first 3D printing machine. This is the result of a technology specific to the University developed by one of its young startups and designed and manufactured entirely in its laboratories. These high-tech machines are extremely efficient and competitive compared to international technologies.

This initiative taken by the UEMF will be extended to the Moulay Driss high school in the coming days so that these two high schools can offer young high school students the opportunity to familiarize themselves with additive manufacturing technologies and why not start designing and producing innovative prototypes from their secondary studies.

Furthermore, as part of the “youth and science” week that the Hassan II Academy of Sciences and Technology organizes each year, the University has developed an ambitious science awareness and popularization program for young middle and high school students. of the region. No less than 20 actions in the form of conferences, workshops, demonstrations and practical work, simulations and visits to technological platforms are planned in the program within the University campus and in high schools in the region.

The general theme chosen for this edition deals with fundamental sciences for sustainable development but due to the recent earthquake which struck the El Haouz region and the climate change phenomena that our planet is experiencing, the UEMF has broadened the theme to earthquakes. and natural disasters and the precautions to take and behaviors to follow in the face of these phenomena. This significant event in which the University participates annually began on November 21 and will continue until December 1.

The Euromed University of Fez also supported young students from a college in Moulay Yacoub to represent Morocco in the international competition of the First Lego League Challenge organized in Houston in the United States. This team was ranked second in the Robot Design category, among 110 participating teams from around the world. Support in the form of digital and English training for young people and their supervisors and an introduction to additive manufacturing which allowed them to design and create the model presented in this competition. In addition, the University contributed financially to the costs of their trip to the USA.

All these actions and many others to come are part of the cooperation agreement concluded with the Regional Academy of Education and Training of Fez-Meknes, which agreement translates into reality the vision of Mr. Chakib Benmoussa, Minister of National Education, preschool and sport and also member of the Board of Directors of the UEMF and aiming for an effective rapprochement between the national education sector and that of higher education.

The opportunity also to recall that the Euromed University of Fez implemented similar 3D printers last year at universities in Ivory Coast and is preparing to do the same in the Democratic Republic of Congo. , Djibouti and Cape Verde.
