Project Management And Architecture education and Employability

Although the nature of project management is quite unique, Project management education faces a number of challenges. As coined by several researchers, project management education does not meet the actual needs of the industry. Additionally, there is a gap between Project management education on university level and the actual skills of Architecture students. In addition, Architectural Education methods are facing challenges named "21st Century Competencies” which affect the employability of the fresh graduates. Accordingly, several higher educational institutions are changing their teaching methods to equip students with skills that support them with lifelong learning capabilities. This area of research aims at investigates the learning approaches to support knowledge delivery to students, assessing the current skills that are transferred through AE versus the Architecture Engineering and Construction industry job market in Egypt and finally to propose an approach to fill the gap between both.
