Former Central Institute El Gouna

Water, Energy, and Urban Planning

Campus El Gouna, located in a lagoon environment on the Egyptian coast of the Red Sea, began in 2012 as a transnational educational transfer project. TU Berlin was the first German university to operate a campus in Egypt exclusively according to German quality criteria and higher education regulations. The campus was closed in 2022.

The particular challenges of the MENA region formed the basis of both the study programs offered as well as the research conducted at TU Berlin’s El Gouna campus. This particularly included the development and design of new areas as life spaces as well as sufficient water and energy supply.
