Structural Engineering Program


Program Description

The program aims to supply the students with the advanced concepts of structure design, quality control of construction material and basics of site investigation. Student will learn the main criteria of design of main concrete and steel structures. The program aims to provide skills of laboratory, office and site engineer in term of preparation of specifications, project schedule, design, quality control plan, and construction supervision process. Student will have basics of design of steel bridges, concrete bridges, special concrete and steel structures, different types of foundation, shoring system, irrigation structures, and highway roads according to recent design codes versions. Management of project recourses, risk, safety is essential knowledge for structure engineers. The program main goal is to share in the urban development of Egypt, by graduating highly skill structure engineers.

Career Prospects

Structure engineers have versatile opportunities in design companies, construction companies, consulting firms, research entities and educational institutes or other similar organizations. Possible jobs are design engineer, field engineer, construction developer, research assistant, quality engineer, and technical sales engineer.
