More about Rishi
What did you enjoy most about your course at NTU?
"Studying at NTU was an amazing experience. I studied MSc Construction Management and I think the International study tour was the best part of the course. I went to China with classmates and professors for this study tour. We visited live construction sites and studied construction technology projects. We also visited two universities in Beijing and Tianjin where we had interaction with a local professor and students. We shared information about our research projects. This course covers different aspects of the construction industry like technology, legal, integrated working, managing organisations and people. This course is also very reputed with Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) accreditation.
How did NTU help you secure your graduate role?
During the academic year, I visited live construction sites which helped me to understand the management of construction projects in the UK which is very different to India. The curriculum at NTU is very practical and we had presentations, group work, reports, a dissertation and examinations. I am very happy that the research methods I learnt during the course are also helping me today.
