In Chapter 2 of Construction Week's The Education Series, Dr Richard T Schoephoerster, professor and dean of engineering at AUS, tells Construction Week about the new master's degree, and how it will fulfil a market gap that the university is noticing in the local construction sector.

Schoephoerster also outlines how the university crafts its programmes to keep them market-driven, and relevant for local construction industry professionals.
