Engineering (civil, mechanical, electrical, chemical, architectural, building, etc.) is at the core of a successful economy and the infrastructure it develops directly affects the well-being of its citizens and the environment. There are, however, two main challenges that the engineering and construction industry currently face. First, modern engineering project clients are increasingly requiring contractors to deliver projects using limited resources, at low cost, in short duration and to a high level of quality and safety.
Second, much existing infrastructure is under severe strain due to a legacy of inadequate maintenance and rapid population growth. These difficulties cause premature deterioration of existing infrastructure, thereby reducing their intended economic yield. The demand for infrastructure provision and maintenance has thus become more acute and a recognised issue worldwide than ever. Thus, the efficient delivery of infrastructure projects is not the only standard clients desperately expect from contractors, but their sustained improvement throughout the useful life of the infrastructure is also a key requirement. As a result, there will be a continued and growing demand for highly motivated graduates aware of project infrastructure planning, construction, and their subsequent management/maintenance for addressing such challenges.
UK first or second class Honours degree or equivalent internationally recognised qualification, usually in engineering, technology or related discipline. Other qualifications and relevant experience will be assessed on an individual basis.English Language Requirements: IELTS: 6 (min 5.5 in all areas) TOEFL Paper test: 550 (TWE 4) TOEFL Internet test: 79 (R18, L17, S20, W17) Pearson: 51 (51 in all subscores)
