An event showcasing sustainable careers available for architects and engineers across the Middle East is set to be held later this month.

The Green Career Fair will be held in partnership with the Masdar Institute of Science and Technology and Reed Exhibitions during the Seventh World Future Energy Summit from January 20-22 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.

Besides meeting up with potential employers, new professionals will be able to attend workshops on renewable energy career topics.

Masdar Institute’s dean of students, Dr Behjat al-Yousuf, said: “Platforms such as the Green Career Fair offer emerging clean energy professionals the right channel for their professional development through engaging with industries in the field to discuss future trends in clean energy capacity building.

“We hope WFES 2014 will serve as the right forum for leading clean energy corporate brands to identify and select the right professional skills to ensure industry growth.”

Investments in renewable energy are set to be one of the key potential catalysts for job growth in the sector with an expected growth in demand for architects, engineers, urban planners and environmental experts specialising in building sustainable cities and communities.

Other opportunities are likely to increase in the fields of smart power grids, wind farms, solar power plants, hydroelectric plants, and energy efficient transportation systems as governments adopt sustainability in their economic development plans.
