Construction Engineering - MEng

buidling

The Master of Engineering in construction engineering prepares graduate students for higher level professional practice in local and international markets, whether in consulting, industry or government. It is intended for construction engineers who wish to master the practice in their field of specialty.

 

As an integral part of the American University in Cairo, the mission of the Construction Engineering Graduate Program is to provide engineers with high-quality broad engineering vision yet deepen their knowledge in the selected field of technical specialization.  The program caters to demands of industry and research institutes and places a strong emphasis on critical thinking, professional behavior, and ethical conduct.  The overall goal is to advance and upgrade the knowledge of engineers for careers in senior level engineering and technical management positions. 

 

  • Detailed knowledge in management, systems, design and materials in construction engineering

  • Extensive knowledge in an area of student interest from one of the fields involved in construction engineering

  • Awareness of the local and global context in which construction engineering is practiced, including economic and business practices, societal needs, and considerations of public health, safety, environment, culture and ethics

  • An ability to solve unstructured engineering problems, think critically, function well in a team, and communicate effectively

  • A high standard of written and oral communication on technical matters

 

Upon completing the degree requirements for the Master of Engineering in Construction Engineering, students will have the ability to:

  • Apply advanced mathematics, numerical models and computational programming and analysis to define and solve complex engineering problems

  • Acquire the required knowledge in the technical field of his specialization (Construction Management, Construction Engineering materials, Structural Engineering, Infrastructure Engineering, etc.)

  • Assess societal demands in the field of study and translate them into well-defined engineering problems

  • Provide alternative solutions for engineering problems and apply critical thinking while comparing the validity, pros, and cons of each

  • Successfully communicate and interact with the constituencies of various technical backgrounds and fields of specialty

  • Implement the code of ethics within the study and work environments

  • Take the initiative to acquire new knowledge and skills and establish a self-plan for life-long continuing education

  • Research and solve problems in a broad range of construction activities including materials, design, management, and technology
