This is part two of a series of three papers examining engineering education in Egypt. After concerns from several stakeholders about the graduates’ knowledge and skills, a fresh look at the phenomenon is attempted. In this manuscript the views of stakeholders, including students & fresh graduates, engineers with several years of experience, others with long experiences, academics, parents and administrative staff, were elicited. The responses were collected by asking two questions via social media. The aim was to obtain a quick idea on how stakeholders perceive engineering education in Egypt, and the enhancements they would like to see. Four clear requests became evident from the responses: the application of modern innovative teaching methods; soft skills training; modern software applications training; and practical technical or industrial training. These requests provided direction for part three of this series of papers in which suitable experiences from international engineering education providers would be recommended for application in Egypt.
