Course Description

Highway engineering is an engineering discipline branching from civil engineering that involves the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of roads, bridges, and tunnels to ensure safe and effective transportation of people and goods.. The full course should provides a very good basis of Highway engineering. There will also be revisions and solved exams. 

This course is typically taught at the third or fourth year for Civil Engineering students. It might also be needed for Architectural students. The course materials are mostly in simple English; however, for the Arabic transcript, I will provide translation to them. I am hoping that the participants of these courses will enjoy the material and will have great understanding of the Basics of Highways design and alignment. I am also planning to attach any supporting documents in a PDF format that will summarize the lecture videos and notes.


What will you learn in this course:

  • A quick Introduction to Highway Engineering.
  • Geometric Design of Highways, design of flexible and rigid pavements.
  • And more.
