Programme Overview

DMET is a new range of degree programs developed in response to industry demand for graduate engineers with the skills to develop digital technologies for audio-visual content production and delivery.

Increasingly sophisticated technologies, including virtual reality, interactive television and broadband wireless networks will enable us all to experience more ideas, more compellingly and more easily. Likewise broadcasters, publishers and entertainment creators can develop projects more creatively and more efficiently. Behind all of this, digital electronic technologies are key.

Demand for expertise in these areas is growing at an amazing rate. But no longer is an understanding of hardware and software systems enough. Knowing the creative application of these systems and how media practitioners design programs for different media is vital in order for these technologies to continue to evolve and improve.

The DMET courses provide students with both sets of skills to meet these new demands – to be fully accredited engineers with an understanding not only of advanced media hardware and software systems but also with the knowledge and appreciation of how these systems can be used by media practitioners in dynamic and creative ways.
The Faculty of Media Engineering and Technology is offering an International Bachelor program in Digital Media Engineering and Technology. This program consists of 8 semesters which take four years to complete. The degree that will be issued is a Bachelor of Science in Media Engineering and Technology.

According to the law in Egypt demanding at least 10 semesters as requirement for the Egyptian Bachelor in Engineering, a student can get the Egyptian Bachelor after another year of his/her study after the International Bachelor program. This year is considered to be the first year (2 terms) in the study program towards getting the International Master.
