Program Overview

In our increasingly digital-driven built environment, a degree in Architectural Design & Digital Architecture Program is the only route in Egypt and the Middle East to a rewarding career that explore the intersection of architecture and technology. The Architectural Design & Digital Architecture program at GU offers a unique learning experience that blends computational modelling and digital fabrication to solve architectural problems. Benefit from our industry partnerships with industrial entities and expert guest lecturers as you gain the skills necessary to excel in this growing field and call for better design solutions on:

  • IMMERSIVE TECHNOLOGY THAT CHANGES THE ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN PROCESS:AI, ML, VR and 3D printed construction will significantly expand the limits of architecture and construction.
  • THE SMART CITIES DESIGN: Big data is essential to understanding how people in cities move, use of energy, the interaction of various aspects of infrastructure, and much more. 
  • ECO-FRIENDLY ARCHITECTURE: Only by having an economic focus through multiple facets of the architectural industry, we hope to protect our future environments and climate.

Join our program and challenge your curious and creative mind as you change the way you think about the design process. You’ll explore contemporary issues in architectural modelling, from design to fabrication, including clean manufacturing and sustainable materials. With our program, you’ll be prepared to tackle the challenges facing the architecture industry today.

    Learning Outcomes

    We are following the National Academic Reference Standards (NARS) for Engineering Sector as below: 

    • Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying engineering fundamentals, basic science and mathematics.
    • Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation and/or simulation, analyze and interpret data, assess and evaluate findings, and use statistical analyses and objective engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
    • Apply engineering design processes to produce cost-effective solutions that meet specified needs with consideration for global, cultural, social, economic, environmental, ethical and other aspects as appropriate to the discipline and within the principles and contexts of sustainable design and development.
    • Utilize contemporary technologies, codes of practice and standards, quality guidelines, health and safety requirements, environmental issues and risk management principles.
    • Practice research techniques and methods of investigation as an inherent part of learning.
    • Plan, supervise and monitor implementation of engineering projects, taking into consideration other trades requirements.
    • Function efficiently as an individual and as a member of multi-disciplinary and multi- cultural teams.
