|Study system in the institute|
The institute adopts the credit hours system, which gives the student the opportunity to study at his own pace & his/her own abilities. Unlike the usual fixed format teaching being fo11owed by Egyptian universities, the credit-hour system enables the student to select a number of courses from a well - planned academic program.
The program provides a variety of courses some of which are geared to a specific major, some are general and cultural in nature the rest are electives to enhance one's major. The system ensures that the slow learner does net hold back the advanced student. The advanced student is permitted to choose more courses and when he/she fulfills the requirements of the degree, he/she may graduate earlier than other students. Each student is assigned an academic advisor who guides him/her in planning his/her study program, monitor his progress, and help solve any problems he/she may encounter. The system encourages the student to develop independent thinking, gives him/her enough time to widen his scope of interest, and trains him/her to search for information through the use of the library and other learning facilities.
Assessment of a student's work is done regularly on a daily or weekly basis throughout the semester. He/she is given thorough homework tests mid term examination, he/she may be asked to write a term paper, and sit through final examinations. This will enable the student to learn faster and the teacher to judge his/her work.
Properly and objectively. According to the credit hour system, a student is permitted to repeat any course in which he/she scores a low grade to improve his overall average.
At HTI, a student may study for a diploma or a bachelor's degree depending on the program he selects. To earn an engineering diploma he/she should complete 120-credit hours, which requires at least about three year of study. If he/she wants to fulfill the requirements of a B.Sc in engineering in one of the majors offered, then he/she has to complete an additional 80 credit hours, which require about two more years of academic study. The academic year is divided into three semesters. The first two semesters are academic instruction - 15 weeps each, and the third is devoted to practical training -10 weeks, at one of the factories or project sites at Tenth of Ramadan City, the Sixth of October City, and other locations throughout
