The Nile Higher Institute for Engineering & Technology accepts students who have obtained the certificate of General Secondary Education (GSE) submitted through the Coordination Office, and applicants transferring from other educational institutions, after getting the approval of the Ministry of Higher Education, students holding equivalent certificates from Arab and foreign countries, holders of the American High School diploma, IGCSE certificate, and students obtained the certificate of Al-Azhar Secondary Education. The Institute accepts also nonEgyptian students according to the general rules and system of the state determined by the Minister of Higher Education.
The study system in the Institute depends on the semester system. The academic year is divided into three semesters as follows:
Civil Engineering is a branch of engineering that is closely related to the beginnings of human existence and its development throughout history. It is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the study, design and analysis of human facilities, including roads, bridges, canals, tunnels, airports, ports, sewerage systems, dams, and irrigation projects. Thus, it cannot be restricted to be the science concerned with only design. Like other sciences, civil engineering is constantly developing. In recent years, civil engineering has been largely associated with industrial development to produce new, advanced building materials that meet the ever-increasing demands of society.
Architecture is the art and technique of designing, planning, and constructing buildings and facilities that man utilizes to satisfy his material or spiritual needs through using various different construction materials and methods. Thus, it serves both utilitarian and aesthetic ends. Architecture is a broad field; it includes various fields of knowledge and human sciences, such as mathematics, science, technology, history, psychology, politics, philosophy, social sciences, culture and art in its comprehensive form. Architecture has a close-knit relationship with the areas of urban planning of cities, and the development of strategic plans. It also deals with civil furnishing and interior design. During the design phase, the architect is required to creatively make use of all the available resources and techniques to analyze the contrasting data. Then, he develops a complete and detailed conception of the project, putting into consideration functional, artistic and aesthetic aspects and linking it to the nature, traditions and customs in the region. Finally, he gets an appropriate version of the design reflects the needs of the people who use the place later. He is also required to prepare drawing of various architectural and construction plans to determine the construction method, prepare schedules, cost estimation and construction management. The word "architecture" is also used to include all other designed systems, computer architecture, and software architecture (especially in the field of information technology.)
It is a broad, complex engineering discipline that covers subfields such as electrical engineering, electronics engineering and communication engineering. This department includes many branches as follows:
Electrical and Electronics Engineering is an engineering discipline concerned with the study and applications of electrical, electronics, and electromagnetic fields. This field became known in the late nineteenth century after the spread of telegraph and power supply stations. Now, this field covers a number of sub-topics, which include energy, electronics, automatic control systems, signal processing and wireless communications.
it is a branch of electronic engineering that is concerned with developing and manufacturing electronic components such as capacitors, inductors, in addition to semiconductor elements such as diodes and transistors.
Communication Engineering is the engineering field that is related to all issues of digital and analog communications. It includes the electrical and electromagnetic signals, the methods of their transmission, and its treatments. The communication system usually consists of a transmitter, a receiver and a communication channel.
It is the unit that takes information and prepares it to be sent through the channel. During that time, inclusion takes place.
It is the medium in which signals and information are transmitted (such as the atmosphere in the case of radio).
It is the unit of receiving signals, in which the processing of signals is removed and displayed in the form of information again.
Suggested Courses for First-Year Engineering Students Everyone comes to Nile Higher Institute of Engineering and Technology with a different background and aspirations. The suggestions on this page are intended only to help you to understand some of your options. There are many ways to start the engineering curriculum, and your freshman advisor will work with you to design a program that fits your goals.
