Profile

Brief Biography

Ezzat Fahmy joined AUC in Fall 1989 and played a key role in establishing and accrediting the construction engineering program. Since 1989, Fahmy has held several administrative positions, including construction engineering unit head (1991-1995), chair of the engineering department (1995-1999), director of the interdisciplinary engineering programs (2001-2006) and associate dean for undergraduate studies (2006-2010).

Fahmy is an active member in several national and international professional organizations including the Association of Professional Engineers of Ontario (APEO) Engineers, the Egyptian Syndicate for Engineers (ESE) and the Canadian Society for Civil Engineers (CSCE). He is a member in several Egyptian code committees in the fields of reinforced concrete design, concrete materials and bridges design.
