School of Engineering

With the rapid developments in the field of technology in general in recent times, the need for graduating engineers who can keep up with these developments is of paramount importance. Engineers should be familiar with these developments and their use in their fields of specialization, linking them with humanitarian or societal needs, as well as participating in driving these developments. Our aim from establishing the Faculty of Engineering at Newgiza University is to design programs that encourage interdisciplinary approaches to learn and to provide students with theoretical knowledge and the ability to apply it in practical applications. We also focus on the knowledge they need in social and economic fields that qualify them to participate in the labor market efficiently, as well as expand the labor market with new ideas.

The main principle of the programs offered under the School of Engineering is to provide an integrated approach to the development of professional engineers where core subjects are not taught separately but are integrated into applied engineering topics, and students are not only challenged to develop their theoretical knowledge but also to apply that knowledge simultaneously while developing professional skills and exploring creativity through a series of semester projects (called “challenges” and “scenarios”).

 

The School of Engineering is committed to providing students with excellent educational services that allow them to keep pace with the rapid developments in all Engineering fields; equip them with the knowledge, skills, and professional attitude necessary to contribute to those developments. The School of Engineering prepares a graduate who is active in community service; able to conduct scientific and applied research in their field, prepared for lifelong learning; able to succeed and excel in their chosen field of work, research, or advanced professional areas, and exploit new technologies in different market sectors, local, emerging or global.

The Engineering programs at NGU provide an integrated approach to the development of professional engineers. Fundamental topics are not taught separately but integrated into applied engineering topics. Students are challenged to not only develop their theoretical knowledge but also to simultaneously put that knowledge into practice, while developing professional skills, through a series of projects (termed challenges and scenarios). These authentic and industry-inspired activities help students connect their learning, and practice the skills that will be critical for their future professional success.

The first part of the program provides a fundamental grounding in the basic concepts of Mathematics, Physics. It is complemented by laboratory sessions to develop fundamental skills in each of these areas and to prepare students for their first project experiences. Most of the first-year courses are offered to all the Engineering programs, with a few specialized courses.

The School offers initially two programs:

  1. Computers, Communications and Autonomous Systems Engineering (CCAS).
  2. Architectural Engineering (AE).

For the CCAS, and after the fundamental grounding in the first year that includes introduction to programming, the students then deepen their software/programming knowledge and gain experience in the theory and practice of electronics and electronic systems. Then in the next part of the programme the applications-led themes of the programme: computers, communications systems and autonomous systems start to emerge. The emphasis is introducing these key applications while also developing further knowledge in the fundamental areas introduced earlier. Students will engage in a range of technical modules that connect the applications themes of the programme. Students then begin to be able to choose their specific paths with routes in communications and autonomous systems. The programme is arranged in two streams with one core module that connects these streams. The Communications Theme develops in-depth knowledge of communications networks and technologies with an emphasis on the internet and cloud applications. The Autonomous Systems Theme focuses on advanced principles and practice of machine learning systems and the development of intelligent systems in software and the interaction of hardware and software control. Students will have the option of an industrial placement, an international exchange or a research project in one of the specialist research areas of NGU for a whole semester.

In the final year, students select elective modules to match with the research expertise of the faculty at NGU and their chosen track. These modules will cover advanced topics applicable to communications and autonomous systems. Student also undertake a significant dissertation relating to a major design project.

For AE, and in the first year students study an introduction module which gives students a glimpse into the practice of architecture, precision of engineering, practicalities of construction and the necessary considerations of the environment. A design studio is also included in the year 1 studies so that the students may be able to explore abstract theories of architecture as well as start to develop their understanding of design and its digital and visual communication tools. Year 1 will also introduce the students to history of local art, architecture and heritage which will serve as a basis for their own design projects.

The students then study a combination of Architectural Theory I and Design Studio which is aimed at introducing students to the abstract theories of design including, light, volume, colour and texture, so that the students can start to develop their ability to develop a poetic and visually artistic narrative around their design ideas. This will help students transition from the abstract of architecture to the practicalities of building small scale buildings. Here is where the students will start to understand the relationship between creating beauty through artistic design and engineering a structure that will embody their visions. Material exploration, structural and environmental design studies, as well as sustainability and user studies in the Integrated Building Design modules are all part of the second-year curriculum.

Studies in contemporary cities and urban planning, integrated building design, sensing and controls, advanced civil engineering, and structures are the major studies that will propel students into the technical realm of Architectural Engineering. The Design Studio and Architectural Theory modules at will be the catalyst for students to integrate their developing engineering knowledge and skills, into their architectural ideas and designs. These are all designed to support Architecture as a front-facing discipline in their learning and will be underpinned by the accompanying engineering studies to make their design ideas of larger buildings and small cities become a reality.

Later year studios in this year are supported by Architectural Bids, Briefs and Planning so that students get experience of working on the practicalities of architectural engineering workplace practice. Construction and construction management is also central to their studies. Additionally, in the final year students, the program is designed such that they can choose a specific pathway with options such as advanced sustainable architecture, urban and landscape design, interior design, and architectural technology. In their final year, the students choose electives to fill out their chosen track alongside their graduation project, advanced project management, building economics, and research methods modules.

Graduation Requirements are as follows:

  1. CCAS program graduates should study at least 146 credit hours and AE program graduates at least 149 credit hours
  2. Students must successfully submit and defend a graduation project
  3. Students must spend at least 8 weeks internship
