Introduction to CPAS training unit

The specialized engineering training course is one of the main engineering units in the Center of planning and architectural studies.
It works in cooperation and coordination with the other units in preparing and organizing the training courses for the engineers from different specializations: urban planning, architecture, structural engineering, sanitary, civil engineering, project management, economic feasibility studies and pre-investment studies in Egypt and abroad.

Engineering Courses


List of specialized courses held by the Center, aiming at helping engineers to acquire skills and special experiences in the various fields of engineering.

Computer Courses


These courses aim at promoting the engineers efficiency by the use of the computer facilities in order to create engineering drawings, and by means of which designs can be produced whether they are of two or three dimensions or maquettes or video films of the project. This is performed as soon as possible.

Computer Courses

The course aims to raise the efficiency of engineers and increase their productivity through two specialized courses to introduce the trainee to the potential of the program directed to produce two-dimensional paintings in the form of horizontal projections, interfaces, executive drawings, etc.

The aim of the course is to raise the efficiency of engineers and increase productivity through a specialized course for the process of building the building in the third dimension vacuum and work binoculars

The course aims at introducing the trainee to how to draw and color the different architectural plots in an attractive way that explains the design idea and helps in drawing it closer to the client by putting colors, shades and finishing materials closer to the truth than it has the most impact on the owner of the project. Among the general public

The course aims at getting the trainee to create a closer picture of the building. He learns how to put the different materials of the building elements. He also learns how to put the appropriate lighting for the desired picture, adding natural backgrounds to the building that increases the reality of the final product of the trainee. The building to help the architect to recognize the dimensions and aesthetics of the building from all directions and modify or improve what he deems appropriate

Raise the efficiency of engineers by exploiting the capabilities of the computer to create in the engineering drawings, through which the production of designs, whether two dimensions or three dimensions or models or video clips of the project as soon as possible. This program outperforms its capabilities for other programs and can run under Mac OS X and Windows as well as on networks where the project is working on the same file for more than one engineer at a time on his machine

It is a program for the structural analysis of the different elements of the building. The analysis is done under the effects of vertical and horizontal loads. The program has evolved from the previous in ease and accuracy of inputting information and obtaining the results. The analysis process is done directly in simplified images, together with the possibility of solving all elements of the building easily, Design of structural elements

The program is used for project planning, management and control. And to calculate the periods of time for the completion of each phase and its cost and return in the form of tables and curves and reports to clarify each stage to achieve the project goal in the time period required and the expected return

To increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the comprehensive development processes and the associated economic, social and urban activities using one of the advanced information systems tools namely Geographical Information Systems (GIS) because of their high efficiency in dealing with information in various components and linking them directly with urban maps. Represent the basis of decision-making processes and build a strong database and information that contributes to the accuracy and speed of the decision-making process, especially with successive variables

Used to identify trainee programs (Word – Excel – PowerPoint) By means of the definition of how to use writing programs, and multiple pages, and the presentation and the subsequent storage of files and printing, etc., and the course aims to teach how to write professionally using the computer, and teaching how to work tables and graphs, To different ways of showing and explaining
