The civil major at CIC provides a various number of courses in different civil disciplines, that teach students to highlight and solve problems, and improve the built environment, consequently, preparing them for the professional field.
What will I learn?
The Civil Engineering major offered by the Institute of Engineering at CIC aims to develop the academic and professional capabilities of the students and train them to be able to work in all areas of civil engineering. This field of study is considered the oldest professions in history. It includes a wide range of disciplines: (1) Structural engineering and construction management , (2) Public works engineering and (3) Hydraulic and water resources engineering. Graduation requirements: civil engineering students need to achieve 170 CHS to earn a Bachelor in civil engineering.
Here is a glimpse of what students will study upon choosing Civil Engineering, hence defines the job description per discipline:
-Structural Engineering discipline aims to build safe structures with high quality and low costs. The discipline job opportunities include design and execution of buildings and other civil facilities such as bridges, dams, tunnels and facilities of special nature: such as tall buildings. Construction Management oversees various elements of the building process, hence helps in management of a project's resources and equipment, followed by knowing how to construct buildings that are safe, functional and sustainable. The Construction management sub-discipline opens doors to the following career paths: site engineering, construction manager, construction project manager, general contractor, construction project director, and sustainability consultant.
-Public-works discipline is intended to provide infrastructure work related to civil engineering with environmental goals and environmental protection systems. It teaches space geodesy and Photogrammetry, land information systems and remote sensing. Transportation planning, traffic engineering of railways and Highways, traffic engineering in airports, health and environmental engineering. The discipline job opportunities include environmental impact engineer, surveying and geodesy engineer, traffic engineer, GIS and remote sensing engineer.
-Water Resources Engineering and Hydraulics discipline aims to study the water behavior in open channels, drainage systems, design of networks (water, irrigation, sewage, and rain water drainage) and pump stations, groundwater flow and all other water resources applications. This discipline opens doors to work opportunities such as: networks simulation engineer, planning and land division, Water resources engineer, asset management planning engineer, environmental engineer, groundwater simulation engineer, water structures modelling engineer, and flash flood structures engineer.
“The program of Civil Engineering in the Higher Canadian Institute for Engineering and Business Technology is committed to preparing a distinguished graduate, by providing an educational program consistent with the National Academic Reference Standards to ensure the acquisition of civil engineering competencies and ethics through educational techniques, and the ability to conduct research to meet the requirements of our profession, societal needs, and develop entrepreneurship skills. The program instills in its graduates how to deal with academic/professional challenges using a creative manner in an ethical and moral domain.”
“The Civil Engineering Program at the Higher Canadian Institute for Engineering and Business Technology seeks leadership and excellence in the field of specialization on local and regional levels while achieving sustainable development.”
The Civil Engineering program study plan aims to develop the academic and professional efficiency of students and train them for work in all Civil Engineering fields.
Head of Department Message
“It is an honor for me to be in charge of the Civil Engineering Department in one of the best educational institutes in Egypt. In CIC, we are fully committed to applying the latest scientific teaching methods and to know what is new in practical training. In order to qualify our students to deal with future career challenges and assure that they have enough information to make decisions with full confidence.”
