Engineering science is a broad discipline that encompasses many different scientific principles and associated mathematics that underlie engineering. It integrates engineering, biological, chemical, mathematical, and physical sciences with the arts, humanities, social sciences, and the professions to tackle the most demanding challenges and advance the well-being of global society.

Architecture engineering is branch of engineering which combines art, science & technology and application of engineering principles for the development of designing, planning, and construction. Architecture is the constant innovation in designing for high-efficiency in the performance of buildings, in terms of planning, construction, and lighting, while maintaining and applying the art in its form. Moreover, the field of architecture goes hand in hand with that of Technology.

Technology is the branch of knowledge that deals with the creation and use of technical means and their interrelation with life, society, and the environment, drawing upon such subjects as industrial arts, engineering, applied science, and pure science. With the development of technology during the 20th century, many of its facilities, including architecture and engineering, have been influenced by architectural innovation. This was through globalization and openness to the world in the West, which is creating huge architectural breakthroughs by many of the world's great architects who have resorted to the use of modern and advanced technology. This technological development was not limited to construction materials but entered the world of computing and global communication. This development moved from the human mind to the computerized mind, from the human hand to computerized systems and programs.

Nowadays, engineering technology has to cope with the rapid industrialization and urbanization seen in most countries. Furthermore, creative design and construction practices are challenging tasks to the architects and engineers to meet the ever-growing demands of society. Therefore, IEREK provides this conference on "Architecture, Engineering, and Technology" that will cover a wide range of topics in architecture, engineering, and technology.

IEREK aims with this conference to build an international platform that allows interested experts to exchange and discuss their experiences, researches, ideas, technology, and survey reports in the practical and theoretical areas regarding all aspects of AET. Following the success of the first edition & Second Edition (in Collaboration with AL-Azhar Univeristy), the third edition of the conference will be held from the 30th to the 31th of March 2019 in Cairo, Egypt.

Benefits Of Attending

Since conferences are the places where new science results are typically first presented so, it helps you sharpen the saw, meet experts & influencers face to face, learning in a new space, build your knowledge base, expand your resources and grow your professional network. Yet attending conferences organized by IEREK will not only helps you gain previous benefits but also can be very rewarding on the professional level due to below reasons:

1. Open Discussions: We bring together leading academic scientists to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of smart cities development. Furthermore, you get to converse with other researchers from different universities and countries. You learn from experts in the field. It is a great opportunity to find more about your field and listen to ideas that could help inspire research ideas of your own.

2. Internationally Accredited Certificate: The participants are granted internationally recognized certificates which will be added to their certificates of experience or could be presented to the official authorities concerned.

3. Publication: The conference proceedings will be published by one or more journals since authors can choose to publish their research paper either in "ARChive" international journal of science hosted by IEREK Press or "SSRN" by "ELSEVIER". Besides, high-quality manuscripts based on scientific committee evaluation will be published either in Environmental Sciences & Sustainable Development (ESSD) by IEREK Press or a book series by "Springer".

4. Research Technologies: Conferences also can expand your resources by providing a great opportunity to promote gathered information on new technologies related to your research. Moreover, they let you test them out, share teaching tools and techniques, or even obtain samples of textbooks.

5. Networking: Conferences help in networking which often increases your chances of collaboration in future projects. As you can engage with respectable professors and discuss with them the very latest research projects they could be working on.

6. Academic Reputation: Attending many conferences will make you a known figure in academic circles, not to mention the benefits for your C.V as it will create an impression that you are an active member of the academic community.

7. Conference Proceedings Material: Delegates will have the choice of receiving the conference proceedings as either a hardcover book or in digital format on a CD. The CD will additionally contain proceedings from previous conferences in this series.

8. Venue: Getting an overview of the place or city where the conference is being held and learning about its people and culture.
