Technische Universität Berlin established a satellite campus in Egypt to act as a scientific and academic field office. The nonprofit public-private partnership (PPP) offers German services provided by TU Berlin at the campus in El Gouna, on the Red Sea. TU Berlin has established three new Master’s degree programs – in Energy Engineering, Urban Development, and Water Engineering – as pilot programs at the new campus. more to:
New Master's Degree Programs in Cooperation with DAAD
TU Berlin is currently in the process of initiating two new Master’s programs at Campus El Gouna in Business Engineering and IT for Energy. The project is financially supported by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). The two new programs are scheduled to launch in October 2015, subject to official approval from German and Egyptian authorities. Any new information regarding the process will be provided here as soon as it is available.
The Second International Symposium on Flash Floods in Wadi Systems
Disaster Risk Reduction and Water Harvesting in the Arab Region
In recent years, flash floods in Wadi systems have caused severe damages, especially in the Arab regions. Human life, infrastructure such as roads and buildings as well as the environment are endangered and have been heavily destroyed. Flash floods are caused by extreme weather conditions, their occurrence is highly random and the associated problems are expected to increase in the near future due to climate change. On the one hand, there is an urgent need for flash flood protection and risk reduction, on the other hand, this rainwater can also be considered as a new resource for water harvesting.
Finding solutions to these challenging problems requires close collaboration between scientists – established as well as young ones, - practitioners, and stakeholders from federal and public organizations. So we encourage you to contribute to the development of future solutions and to widen your own expertise and profile by attending the international symposium.
This event is the second in a new series of annual International Symposia on Flash Floods in Wadi Systems. Furthermore this symposium is supported by the Water Resources Research Center (WRRC) and the Global Alliance of Disaster Research Institutes (GARDI) of the Disaster Prevention Research Institute (DPRI), Kyoto University, Japan. The First International Symposium on Flash Floods in Wadi Systems held in October 2015 in Kyoto, Japan, was attended by about one hundred scientists, practitioners and stake holders from 11 countries.
Students are invited to submit abstracts for oral presentation or poster. The first ten accepted students have not to pay any fee and get a support of 1000 LE.

Successful PhD defense of Dr. Ahmed Hadidi
Campus El Gouna is proud to announce the graduation of the first PhD student with a pioneer research El Gouna area, fully prepared at the campus in Egypt. The geologist Ahmed Hadidi (MS.c.) started his research on the geology and hydrogeology of El Gouna by the first semester after the campus opening (WS 2012) with the supervision of Prof. Dr. Uwe Tröger. Mr. Hadidi succeeded to measure for the first time the real value of the flow of the flash flood of wadi Bili on March 2014 with our graduated master student Ahmed Askar.
