After working for railroad companies in both the United States and Egypt, Khalil taught (1951–56) engineering at Ain Shams University in Cairo. When Egypt became a republic in 1953, Khalil began advising the new government, and in 1958 he joined the cabinet as minister of transport and communications. He held various other ministerial posts, including deputy prime minster (1964–66), before his appointment as prime minister. In 1980 Khalil became deputy chairman of the Democratic National Party; he stepped down in 2007.
