Master of Science in Construction and building Engineering

The Master of Science in Construction Engineering is administered by the construction engineering department. The program offers a high-quality education that prepares students for advanced academic, research and professional careers in construction management and systems, structural engineering and construction materials and Infrastructure engineering.

The program prepares graduate students for higher-level professional and academic practice in local and international markets, whether in consulting practice, industry, or government.


To provide high-quality engineering education within a liberal arts context to students from Egypt and other countries. The aim is to prepare generations of engineers to excel as leaders in their professions. The pursuit of excellence is central to the department’s mission, conducting state-of-the-art research, maintaining the highest standards of academic achievement, professional behavior and ethical conduct
