Workshop 2: Interdisciplinary Potential
The second stakeholders’ workshop was held in Cairo in March 2018. The aim of the workshop was to determine the potential for interdisciplinarity approaches to be integrated into the education curricula, the curricula reforms necessary to achieve this and the potential for interdisciplinary aspects to be tailored towards current market needs to improve the employability of Architecture students. This will be critical for building future capacity in Egypt’s multidiscipline construction sector.
The second workshop was also used as an opportunity to gather additional questionnaire data to provide insight into current education and practice of sustainable design in Egypt, with a sample of academics and practitioners responding to a variety of questions. These questionnaires will be used to establish a strategic framework for embedding sustainability within Architectural course within Egypt
