2017 Graduate Information
Has the world ever seen such rapid change? In 120 years we’ve gone from the horse and cart to Mars. From the written letter to a portable computer in every pocket, where we can have a video conversation across the globe for free, instantly. That’s now, so how about tomorrow? For example, did you know that by the year 2050 the most important resource on earth will be drinking water?
This is the rate of change we’re dealing with. That’s why it’s vitally important that as an 1,800 strong, international firm of engineering professionals we practice broader and deeper thinking with an understanding of the future.
But in terms of long term economic, cultural, societal and environmental perspectives, we see it as our responsibility to make a positive impact.
We are not architects or builders. We are an interconnected community of engineering specialists that bring to bear cutting-edge integrated thinking, best practice, and strident creativity to make a project vision viable, whether that vision is for a building, a neighbourhood or an entire city.
So, hello. We’re pleased to meet you.
