Diploma in Advanced Construction Technologies

 

Introduction

The need for adopting advanced technologies has become necessary to achieve sustainable engineering projects, especially for the construction industry. This professional diploma in ACT, offered by the German University in Cairo, the Civil Engineering Program intended for professional civil engineering graduates interested to gain access to theoretical bases and along with current and future trends in ACT. Various Advanced Construction Technologies (ACT) have emerged over the last decades, in addition to related disruptive technologies.

New and active civil engineer graduates need to become aware of the technological advancements in field of construction, both in relation to concepts and practices in these areas within in a competitive job market. The construction industry stakeholders are looking for high-caliber candidates with knowledge and skills in construction disciplines, with preference for awareness of trending technologies. This diploma bridges the gap between undergraduate education and latest Advance Construction Technologies developments, both nationally and internationally

The structure of the four courses is designed to cover both fundamental and advanced topics in ACT, and to include relevant topics from disruptive trending technologies, such as Aerial and Terrestrial Laser Scanning (LiDAR) of construction sites, and Building Information Modelling (BIM), in terms of concepts and processes. Throughout course of study, enrolled participants will be exposed to both theoretical and practical aspects of ACT and will establish a solid understanding of fundamental and advanced concepts in the ACT.


Diploma’s Objectives
