The objective of the study is to understand the connection between higher education as a joint development project between Egypt and Japan and ESD based on students’ opinions. The research subject of the study, Egypt-Japan University of Science and Technology (E-JUST) employs educational methods centered on “Japanese style education” in Engineering education, and the Project-based learning (PBL), which is one of the methods, is focused in the study. In order to gauge how the Japanese style education or PBL have influence on students at E-JUST and how they are related to ESD, interviews with E-JUST students and graduates were undertaken. The result showed that students’ experience at E-JUST can help them attain ESD-related competencies or enhance the competencies they already have.
