ALUMNI from GCU have used their skills to help create iconic buildings across the globe.
Staff at GCU London work for one of the UK’s most prestigious Built and Natural Environment schools.
Graduates of our Glasgow programmes have helped develop the YAS-Marina Formula 1 race track in Abu-Dhabi, the PETRONAS Twin Towers, in Kuala Lumpur, and the Scottish Parliament, in Edinburgh.
Other projects include the Riverside Transport Museum, the Beatson Cancer Centre, and the Victoria Hospital, in the west of Scotland.
One of our best-known alumni is Khalid Abdulrahim, owner of Cebarco, the multi-billion dollar Bahraini construction company, responsible for iconic projects such as the Bahrain F1 Grand Prix Circuit and the Abu Dhabi F1 YAS-Marina Circuit.
He said: “I am honoured to be a supporter of the university that helped me move my company to the next level.”
Devised by leading academics, GCU London’s MSc in International Project Management (link to Programme page) is academically challenging, rewarding and has strong links with multinational employers.
Our alumni are equipped with skills to forge successful careers in the increasingly competitive construction industry through professional accreditation and work-based learning.
