UTW 10th Round graduation

  • The ceremony for the graduation of the UTW students took place on Monday, September 10th, 2018. Students graduating this round were 500+ students covering different engineering specializations including architecture and interior design. Key invitees included the Minister of Trade and Industry, representative of the Minister of Social Solidarity, several of UTW sponsors such as the Rotary, and CSR contact persons from the industry such as Skib, Schneider, and Siraj companies, as well as academics from various universities. The event also included the parents of the 500+ graduating students.

    Vice president of ECG and UTW founder and program manager, Dr. Nevine Abdelkhalek, presented the IMPAQT project as one of ECG’s prized partnerships claiming that this project will result in an undergraduate program at NU whose graduates will not need UTW program...; that is that NU Architecture and Urban Design program (output of IMPAQT project) will fill the gap that UTW targets. She explained that this will be possible through the responsibility of ECG, as partner in IMPAQT, to integrate UTW expertise into the 5-year program as practicum to many courses in addition to a few stand-alone courses.

IAPS

  • IMPAQT was successfully introduced to IAPS members this summer through an entry (poster exhibit) in their 25th IAPS Conference that was held in Rome, Italy on July 8-13, 2018. Our partner colleague, Ferdinando Fornara, who was recently elected IAPS Board Member, kindly presented the poster. The poster included a brief description of the project; its aims, outputs, and timeline as well as the results from the empirical study and gap analysis that were conducted in the project’s initial stages. It was well received and several prominent IAPS members showed interest to know more about the project and to explore venues of collaboration. The Editor of the IAPS bulletin, Ricardo Garcia Mira, will also kindly include a 1000 word article about IMPAQT project to be published in the forthcoming IAPS bulletin issue.

    IAPS, the International Association for People-Environment Studies, was formed officially in 1981, but with intellectual roots dating back to the ‘60s in the architectural psychology movement. IAPS is a multidisciplinary association gathering researchers and practitioners from around the world, with a shared interest in people’s interaction with their environment. Psychology, sociology, geography, architecture and planning are only a few of the disciplines represented. IAPS serves both as a platform for disciplinary discussion and collaboration for its members who are engaged in both theoretical and applied research, as well as practice and have links to policy making.
