Utilities and Infrastructure Program


Program Description

Utilities and Infrastructure Program (formerly Public Works Engineering) is the heart of public utilities and infrastructure development programs in cities as well as national levels. Utilities and Infrastructure engineers deal with providing effective, efficient and sustainable public infrastructure. The Utilities and Infrastructure program aims at providing well educated civil engineers with special expertise in sustainable Utilities and Infrastructure planning and infrastructure management, surveying engineering, water and wastewater networks, water and wastewater treatment, solid waste management, highway and airport engineering, transportation planning, traffic engineering and railway engineering. The program also aims at preparing its graduates to appreciate sustainable integrated Utilities and Infrastructure systems. This will support preparing engineers that can meet present and future challenges in Egypt, the Arab countries and world community are facing to provide sustainable and efficient Utilities and Infrastructure.

Career Prospects

Utilities and Infrastructure engineers use their expertise in areas such as surveying, structural engineering, environmental engineering, sanitary engineering, transportation planning, traffic engineering, highways and airport engineering, railway engineering as well as mathematics and computer analysis to solve problems associated with the planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance of Utilities and Infrastructure systems. These systems include roads, airports, highway networks, transport systems, railway systems, traffic management, water and wastewater networks, water and wastewater treatment facilities and solid waste management. Graduates of this program can work with:

  • Government authorities
  • Municipalities
  • Urban infrastructure organizations
  • Consulting firms in civil engineering and construction
  • Civil engineering contractors and project managers
  • Water and sanitation utility companies
  • Transport authorities and operating companies
  • Environmental engineering organizations
  • Water regulatory authority

Program Concentrations

There are no specified concentrations in this Program.

Program Competences

In addition to the competences for all Engineering Programs (A-Level) and the competencies for the Civil Discipline (B-Level), the Utilities and Infrastructure Program graduate must be able to (C-Level):

  • C1: Identify principles in the fields of surveying, geodesy, photogrammetry, remote sensing, roads and airport systems, traffic engineering, transportation planning, railway engineering, water and wastewater systems and their codes of practice and standards.
  • C2: Plan and design of roads and highways, railways, transport systems, traffic management systems, water and wastewater networks and treatment facilities and produce civil drawings.
  • C3: Consider environmental issues in transportation planning and traffic engineering, water and wastewater systems, solid waste management, conduct field and laboratory measurements, and assess environmental impact of public works engineering projects.
  • C4: Use wide-range of analytical tools, techniques, equipment, and software packages in the field of surveying, remote sensing, transportation engineering and water and sanitation facilities.
  • C5: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding and carry out maintenance of all elements for different types of roads, airports, pavements and traffic systems
  • C6: Demonstrate knowledge, understanding and application of transportation planning and traffic engineering models and systems at various planning scales.
  • C7: Demonstrate knowledge, understanding, and utilization of plane and topographic surveying techniques, processes and equipment, photogrammetry and the Global Positioning system (GPS) in engineering projects
  • C8: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of railway engineering and train operations systems
  • C9: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of water and wastewater networks and treatment facilities and demonstrate knowledge of environment pollution and solid waste management.
