Innovation is rapidly gaining significance across the Middle East, with the UAE championing its involvement across all economic sectors.

Construction is no exception, with major stakeholders, including developers, contractors, and suppliers, now incorporating future-friendly technologies in their developments.

In Chapter 1 of Construction Week's The Education Series, Dr Richard T Schoephoerster, professor and dean of engineering at the UAE's American University of Sharjah (AUS), highlights the role of innovation in the educational institution's construction bachelor's, master's, and PhD programmes.

Schoephoerster also outlines how AUS is transforming its curriculum so design and innovation are at the forefront of its courses, as well as how sustainability is reshaping the university's construction focus.

The Education Series is a collection of three video interviews with Schoephoerster, who outlines AUS's work in the construction education sector as it completes 20 years in the UAE, as well as the renowned institution's future plans.

Schoephoerster's next interview will be published on Monday, 7 May, 2018.
