Trojan extends scheme for 100 more UAE students

DUBAI, December 24, 2018

UAE-based construction firm Trojan Holding, the parent company of Trojan General Contacting, said it has  extended an educational initiative aimed at inspiring university students to become the UAE’s next generation of engineers.

The 100 Trojan Young Engineers project, run in partnership with University of Sharjah, American University of Sharjah and Al Ghurair University, began in 2016 and was completed the following year.
 
Due the success of the initiative and the positive feedback received from the universities and the students, the initiative has now been opened up for a further 100 students to attend some of Trojan’s live constructions sites, said the company in a statement.
 
The third tranche of students recently visited the site of the Maple 3 development in Dubai Hills, where 562 villas are currently under construction, where they were talked through the various stages of the construction process - from start through to completion.
 
Students were able to gain first-hand experience of the day-to-day activities on a construction site and get an insight into the different types of roles on a project, it stated.

Following a friendly competition, seven students were awarded a six-week internship at Trojan Holding, it added.
 
Trojan Holding now plans to extend its highly successful education initiative for a fourth year and aims to include more universities in its next cycle.
 
The project is led by the managing firector Engineer Hamad Al Ameri who, as a qualified engineer, is well-aware of the importance of young engineers to the future of the UAE and is committed to helping them build their skills, experience and leadership qualities.
 
Al Ameri said: "Inspired by the UAE’s 2021 vision and the dedication of our leadership to nurturing the next generation of young talent, we firmly believe in the importance of empowering our young people."
 
"The 100 Trojan Young Engineers project is an important way for students to put into practice the theoretical knowledge they gain at university. Not only is it the best way to learn, but it also provides an insight into the exciting career opportunities in engineering available after graduation," stated the top official.

“Our partnership with some of the UAE’s leading universities has been a resounding success therefore we are delighted to be able to extend the project further,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
