Program Characteristics

Construction Industry accounts for a significant proportion of each country’s workforce and encompasses a wide range of skills and professions. The Integrated Engineering Design Management (IEDM) program is a multi-disciplinary program that is proposed by the Faculty of Engineering – Cairo University. It is certainly the first yet the only accredited MSc degree in the region. IEDM program is uniquely designed to provide Engineers with different background (civil, architecture, electrical, mechanical, etc.) with graduate education that enables them to become familiar with Integrated Engineering Design Management concepts throughout the different stages of the project life cycle. The aim of IEDM program is to provide excellent academic or industrial career opportunities by offering high-level coverage of modeling and computing principles that enable the application of technology in Construction and Projects delivery.
