F. Introduction to MSA University


 October University for Modern Sciences and Arts (MSA) has been established under Republican Decree
 No. 244 for 1996 to introduce state-of-the-art technologies and concepts in all disciplines. MSA is proud
 that its different programmes were fully accredited before the graduation of its first class in Spring 2000.

 MSA is by all means the outcome of 4 decades of experience in the field of education on the local and
 international levels. Dar El Tarbiah was the first Language School founded by Egyptians in 1956. The
 institution has maintained an excellent reputation, based on the high quality of teaching and facilities that
 has been recognized both locally and internationally in GCE, IGCSE, GCSE as well as Egyptian
 Thanaweya Amma and American Diploma. Our students’ excellent performance in the British System has
 encouraged us to expand the British Section in our school to include both IGCSE & GCSE
 simultaneously. Our success in teaching all AL and AS subjects for almost 12 years with outstanding
 results in the IGCSE encouraged us to complete the undergraduate programmes.

 The English Language is the medium of instruction at MSA university. The current academic work of the
 university is divided into five faculties, namely: Faculty of Management Sciences, Faculty of Engineering,
 Faculty of Computer Sciences, Faculty of Engineering, and Faculty of Languages. We are keen on
 providing our students with all the up-to-date tools needed to cope with the Information and
 Communication Technology Era. That is why we are dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in curricula,
 facilities, staff and students. That is the main reason why our modern and progressive policy has been
 internationally acknowledged by universities in the UK and USA as we have several cooperation
 agreements with prominent universities there. MSA programmes are designed and implemented according
 to the most up-to-date international standards. All course outlines highlight the role of new and emerging
 technologies in meeting challenges posed by the Information and Communication Technology Era.

 MSA aims to provide its students with an exceptional learning experience that will enable them to
 compete in the global highly competitive job market. The vast experience of Dar El Tarbiah Institution
 and MSA University in the field of education made its Top Management keen on adapting the British
 Education System due to its unique characteristics that provide students with the necessary up-to-date
 tools and skills in a flexible environment while at the same time ensuring that students are highly
 committed and competitive.

G. Introduction to the Faculty of Engineering


 The Faculty of Engineering at MSA offers four programmes: Bsc (Hons) Architectural Engineering, Bsc
 (Hons) Electrical Communication & Electronic Systems Engineering, Bsc (Hons) Computer Systems
 Engineering, and Bsc (Hons) Industrial Systems Engineering. The Faculty of Engineering emphasizes
 creative and professional aspects of Engineering and Technology; students do not only learn theories, they
 also mix theory with practice. By the time they graduate they would have been trained, and qualified and
 thus ready to work in the field as professionals.

 The Faculty of Engineering offers an Architecture Engineering (ASE) programme which is concerned
 with the architectural design, and improvement of integrated structural and building systems, as well as the
 creative development and application of information technology applicable to acovering all schools of
 architecture. It also deals with the principles of architectural modeling: analysis, and design to specify,
 predict, and evaluate the output as an architectural product of these systems.

 ASE programme has been developed so that it would follow reputable international standards. It meets
 the criteria established by The Committee for Engineering Education Sector set up by The Supreme
 Council of Egyptian Universities, and fulfils local and international needs.

 ASE Bachelor of Sceinces (with Honours) in Architectural Engineering is awarded upon the successful
 completion of an approved curriclum comprised of a minimum of 168 credit hours, normally effected and
 completed in five academic years (10 semesters).

 ASE students are introduced to a broad spectrum of Architectural Engineering topics augmented by
 modern professional practice, technological experiences and constructions market needs.

 ASE curriculum emphasizes the need of multifaceted education to close the gaps between art and science,
 between form and substance, and between asethetics and technology. The curriculum, therefore, inspires
 and exposes the architectural students to as wide range of experiences as possible. This will enable
 students to discover their potentials and interests.

H. Introduction to the University of Greenwich

 The programmes
 The programme is validated by the University of Greenwich. This means that students successfully
 completing all parts of the programme will receive a dual award: the Bsc(Hons) from the University of
 Greenwich and the Bsc(Hons) from October University for Modern Sciences and Arts (MSA) and may
 if they wish to attend the appropriate Greenwich graduation ceremony. Students will enrol as students of
 October University for Modern Sciences and Arts MSA and will be registered with the University of
 Greenwich.

 If a student does not complete the full programme he/she will be given a transcript recording any
 individual elements of the programme successfully completed.

 The programme is supervised by the programme leader, Dr Omar Fawzy, Campus Building C
 Address 26 July Mehwar Road, Intersection with Wahat Road,6 th October City Telephone

1. Overall Structure of the Programme


ASE programme offers 56 modules over 10 semesters, normally completed in 5 academic years. These
modules draws upon specialized professional knowledge and skills in basic mathematics and sciences,
behavioural sciences and humanities, enviromental systems, and computer technology with its
applications in the field of architectural design and presentation, history and theories of architecture,
construction drawings, architectural graphics and communication skills, computer graphics, urban
planning and design, structural systems, interior design and building technical services.

ASE students are introduced to a broad spectrum of Architectural Engineering topics augumented by
modern engineering experimentation, methodology, and practice.

ASE 4 elective modules (12 credit hours) must be selected from one of the available modules in the two
concentration lists. These 4 modules are given in years 4 and 5. The graduation project should be
performed in the same concentration that is related to the chosen courses.



2. Levels and Modules
         ASE students are introduced to a broad spectrum of Architectural Engineering topics augmented
by modern professional practice, technological experiences and constructions market needs.
         ASE curriculum emphasizes the need of multifaceted education to close the gaps between art and
science, between form and substance, and between aesthetics and technology. The curriculum, therefore,
inspires and exposes the architectural students to a wide range of experiences. This will enable students to
discover their potentials and interests.
         The following is the analysis of the Architectural Engineering Programme into subject-area
blocks and their percentages, as well as the depth/breadth of the core.

I- Advanced Mathematics:
   Students are required to take two courses in Mathematics during their first year. The first course deals
   with a mix of Calculus and Linear Algebra. The second deals with Descriptive Geometry. Both are
   adapted to serve the needs of architects.
       MAT132             Mathematics for Architecture.
       MAT146             Descriptive Geometry.

II- Basic Sciences:
    Students are required to take a number of courses, especially adapted to architectural needs, while
    fulfilling the basic sciences requirements. The two courses provide a solid background in Engineering
    Physics that are essential for architectural students.
         BSC134             Engineering Physics I.
