UAE-headquartered construction conglomerate, Trojan Holding, has announced completing the 100 Trojan Young Engineers, a vocational initiative it launched in 2016.

Through the initiative, the company invited engineering students from across the UAE to live construction sites in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, so they can get first-hand experience of day-to-day activities.

According to the company, the initiative sought to give the students insight into the working life of an engineer by allowing them to experience both management and construction site roles.

Eng Hamad Al Ameri, managing director of Trojan Holding, commented: “We were glad to see the level of enthusiasm, competency, and commitment from all the students who [participated in] the 100 Trojan Young Engineers initiative, and were pleasantly surprised by the level of their performance and engagement in the programme.”

He added: “Inspired by the forward thinking of the 2021 vision and the dedication of the UAE leadership, we follow their example and strive to empower future generations as they safeguard and advance the intellectual progress made by those before them.”

The company noted that site visits were conducted at Tamouh Investments’ Horizon Towers on Reem Island in Abu Dhabi; Lu’luat Al Raha in Al Raha Beach, Abu Dhabi, which is owned by International Capital Trading; and Emaar’s Mira Oasis 2 site in Al Qudra, Dubai.

Trojan Holding further pointed out that the site visits provided the students with real life engineering experience, exposing them to the practical aspects of the theories taught in school.
