Trojan Holding launches digital programme for UAE’s future construction leaders

trojan holdingTrojan Holding, one of UAE’s leading construction companies, has launched the fourth edition of its ‘Trojan Young Engineers’ programme to empower the next generation of engineers

The programme, which began on 23 June, is being offered online for the first time, providing an invaluable opportunity for students across the country to gain first-hand exposure and experience of working in the industry. 

The first phase of the digital programme will aim to equip the next generation of the engineers with the knowledge and skills of how construction projects operate on a daily basis. The ‘Trojan Young Engineers’ programme is part of Trojan Holding’s commitment to foster the new generation of engineering leaders in the region.

The latest edition of the programme will focus on Abu Dhabi’s new ‘Water’s Edge’ development at Yas Island. The selected aspiring engineering university students will understand how Trojan Holding’s team of professionals are managing the planning, design and execution stages of the project.

The participants were selected from Abu Dhabi University, Khalifa University, American University of Sharjah, University of Sharjah and Al Ghurair University following an introduction of the programme by Trojan Holding.

Virtually exploring under-construction project

The students will virtually explore the under-construction project with the guidance of Trojan’s proficient engineers, learn about the day-to-day responsibilities and gain an insight of the career in management and construction roles.

Following the conclusion of the programme, Trojan Holding will award six-week internships to students who demonstrate the right attributes such as enthusiasm, practical skills, courage and leadership based on an online assessment.

Hamad Al Ameri, managing director of Trojan Holding, said, “While a university qualification can potentially open the doors to a career, experience remains one of the most important assets for a graduate. As a qualified engineer myself, I know how vital that is in what has become a competitive job market.”

“Trojan Holding is committed to giving back to the community and through the ‘Trojan Young Engineers’ programme, it will help UAE's future leaders of the construction industry gain the practical knowledge and understand the day-to-day responsibilities of the sector.”
