New internship programme from students in construction sector

Filed on September 5, 2020

Dubai — The School of Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure and Society (EGIS) at Heriot-Watt University Dubai has unveiled a new internship programme for new students of MSc Construction Project Management and MSc Commercial Management and Quantity Surveying.

The internship programme is aimed to help students gain hands-on experience of the industry and to increase their employability upon graduation, whilst employers will benefit from gaining fresh perspectives, managing project workload and sourcing great talent. The new programme has been designed keeping in mind the mutual benefits of both students and top industry partners, who together play a pivotal role in shaping the future of the construction industry.

Upon successful completion of their first (Fall 2020) semester, students will then be eligible to apply for the internship programme.

Matthew Smith, associate head of the School of Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure and Society (EGIS) added: “What makes this internship programme stand out from the rest is the thorough assessment of the candidates by our faculty members, who then nominate deserving students for the available roles to our industry partners. Our faculty’s involvement will ensure that the employers receive the best talent to fill the gap and at the same time make sure that the students are on top of their goals.”
