The Structural Engineering Department is targeting national and international recognition and accreditation. The main goal of the Department undergraduate program is, therefore, to provide an integrated curriculum with appropriate theoretical knowledge and technical skills enabling students to develop capabilities and attitudes that are essential for their future successful career, in which they can respond to professional market demands and contribute positively to fulfill the needs of their society and country.
The program aims at qualifying students to understand system constituents, behavior, analysis, design, construction, and development in the following areas:
. Analysis and Mechanics of Structures
. Materials Engineering and Technology
. Reinforced Concrete Structures
. Steel and Metallic Structures
. Construction Management and Engineering
The planned main attainments of the B.Sc. Civil Engineering graduates are:
. Graduates will practice civil and structural engineering in the private and public sectors in Egypt, the Middle East Region, and elsewhere; or successfully pursue advanced studies and careers in academia or in other research environments.
. Graduates will have obtained technical and non-technical knowledge/skills that contribute to personal and employer success, and benefit the communities they serve.
. Graduates will recognize conflicts and adhere to professional ethical standards.
. Graduates will apply sustainability principles in their structural and construction engineering projects and designs, and will contribute to the welfare of the society and the development of the profession through responsible practice of engineering and conscientious involvement in professional organizations.
. Graduates will advance in responsibility and leadership in their careers and engage in continuous professional development to respond to rapidly evolving technological and social challenges, and will aim for advanced degrees and professional licensure.
The Department program will ensure that the student learning outcomes (SLOs), which describe a set of skills that students are expected to have at the time of graduation, will fulfill the following abilities/capabilities:
1. Ability to apply fundamentals of mathematics, basic sciences, and engineering to analyze and solve structural engineering problems.
2. Ability to design and conduct laboratory experiments, and analyze and interpret results.
3. Ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints in recognized major civil and structural engineering areas, such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, and sustainability constraints.
