New PhD scholarship programme aims to support the delivery of more sustainable infrastructure solutions and unlock value
The Aecom Infrastructure Scholarship Programme will advance the science in topics related to infrastructure and programme management.
The researchers will work closely with Aecom’s programme management leadership to disseminate scientific findings and improve the delivery of major infrastructure programmes globally.
“It is a privilege to partner with UCL and embark on this scholarship programme which will have an impact on the future of infrastructure programmes,” said Drew Jeter, chief executive of Aecom’s program management global business line.
“What excites me about this opportunity is to truly make a significant and positive difference in how the next generation will approach and deliver programmes with an evidence based, solution-oriented, outcome driven and sustainable mindset.”
Juliano Denicol, director at the Megaproject Delivery Centre, added: “Aecom and UCL are writing history with this partnership to advance the science in programme management.
“It will support a diverse cohort of future leaders and create a platform to address global societal challenges through infrastructure delivery.”
