Dubai Contracting Company (DCC) has begun its civil engineering course - the Syracuse University Internship Program (DSIP).

The program aims to provide young civil engineering students with an opportunity to experience first-hand what it is like to work in the construction sector in the UAE. The course will involve practical and theoretical training sessions over a six-week summer period.

Twelve students are attending the program, with six coming from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CIE) at Syracuse University in the US, and six from the School of Engineering at the American University in Dubai (AUD).

The program will involve daily site visits to DCC's projects and study sessions at the company's headquarters.

We feel that by investing in young engineering students at an early stage, we can benefit the industry in the UAE in the long term," said Abdallah Yabroudi, CEO of DCC.

The six week long training program was jointly developed by DCC and CIE, and features two main study environments. They will also take part in regular site visits where they will be taught about actual site work from senior DCC engineers.
