The Word Of Head

Our sons are students of the Nile Higher Institute of Engineering and Technology in Mansoura .... hope for a bright future ... On your arms we will build the renaissance of the country ... and by your belief in God and the nation and by your work the nation will rise and the happiness of generations. I am pleased, in my name and on behalf of all employees of the Civil Engineering Department, to welcome you to the website of your institute and your department, which includes many laboratories, workshops, training halls, amphitheatres, teaching rooms, seminar and conference rooms at a high level of quality to accommodate the requirements of students, the educational and training process, and places for the faculty members, the assisting body and the staff of the department. Finally, I wish all the students of the department and the institute success and repayment, and I wish them more diligence and perseverance to achieve success and to continue research, renewal and innovation in order to serve the nation to achieve a bright future, God willing.

Vision & Mission

Consistency of the Program Educational Objectives with the Mission of the Institution:

The Program Educational Objectives were established with input from all program constituent groups. In doing so, the mission of the Institute was addressed. The mission of the institute demands excellence in areas of educational experience, research, creativity, scholarly activity, and communication. Program Educational Objectives address these points of excellence by providing instruction in associated activities for the graduates to grow from technical competency to professional proficiency. Successful CE graduates contribute to the community by creating and developing products and technologies, which directly benefit the people of Egypt.

Program Constituencies

The constituencies of the civil engineering program are those it serves, i.e. the students, alumni, employers, and External Advisory Board. Students are defined as those currently enrolled in the Bachelor of Science in civil engineering Programs. Alumni are students who have graduated from the BSCE program and advanced to careers in industry, professional practice, or pursuit of graduate or professional studies. Employers comprise of companies that hire students on either a full-time or cooperative education internship basis. The External Advisory Board consists of managers or supervisors from local, national and international industries with first-hand knowledge of the skill set required for successful civil engineering graduates.

Civil department :

The department aims to achieve the following points

  1. That the student is the subject of interest in the department
  2. Demonstrate leadership in the country and the region in civil engineering and to develop international teaching curricula.
  3. Attracting and retaining highly qualified faculty members.
  4. Achieving the highest level of communication with society and cooperation with industry
  5. Developing academic programs and increasing research and scientific activities.
  6. The use of modern laboratories and equipment.
  7. Effective use of modern technology in managing the department's activities.
  8. Preparing a graduate who is familiar with the basics of civil engineering and engineering problem-solving skills in terms of design and implementation, and taking into account the ethics and values of practicing the profession.
  9. Qualifying graduates to deal with modern computer programs and information technology in this field.
  10. Preparing a graduate who is fully familiar with the requirements of Egyptian and international standards in the fields of civil engineering.

For this reason, the department pays special attention to training students during the summer vacations in distinguished companies and engineering offices.

Curriculum map

The CEE faculty agreed that the BSCEE program would adopt the following seven outcomes published by ABET Inc.:

  1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics (Problem Solving).
  2. An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors (Design).
  3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences (Communication).
  4. An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts (Ethics).
  5. An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives (Team Work).
  6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions (Experimental Techniques).
  7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies (Knowledge).


The program education objectives (PEOs) for the BSCEE program are built upon the mission statements to provide a high-quality education through the engagement of students via co-op internships, practical experiences and rigorous curriculum. The BSCEE PEOs will generate graduates who:

  1. Succeed in a broad range of careers in industry and graduate/professional school. (Career Opportunities).
  2. Demonstrate leadership, communication and team-building skills. (Leadership and Communication).
  3. Comply with professional ethics codes, understand societal issues and engage in life-long learning for continued professional development. (Life-long Learning) The program educational objectives are discussed with constituents every three years and reviewed and modified, if necessary, during the annual departmental retreat. These constituents include employers, alumni and students.


The registration policy at NHIET relies on academic advisors to check the particular needs of each students and make sure that the appropriate set and sequence of courses are followed. This is supported by a special Academic Advising Module in the web-based student information system (Ibn al-haytham) The academic advisor interface allows the display of the academic plan for the student with the status of each course in order to properly select the courses to be registered. The system checks meeting the prerequisites and the constraints of the maximum number of credit hours that can be registered in a single term. If the student needs to take an out of plan course, then a proper justification should be offered that is checked and approved by the academic advisor then the department chairman before it can be registered using a special paper form. A Table from the Ibn al-haytham academic advising student plan status and registration interface and curriculum chart are shown as follows.
