Construction and Building Engineering
The program aims at meeting the needs of the Egyptian const`ruction industry by forming engineers familiar with the overall design of built facilities.
The Construction and Building Engineering explores all phases of the life cycle of a building and develops an assessment of the building as an advanced technological system.
Problems are identified and appropriate solutions found to improve the performance of the building in areas such as: Energy efficiency, Passive solar engineering, Lighting and acoustics, Indoor air quality, Construction management, HVAC, Advanced building materials, Building envelope, Earthquake resistance, Wind effects on buildings and Computer - aided design.
The job market in Egypt demands building engineers with such a strong background especially to cope with the current national effort to construct affordable and suitable housing for the people.
