26 Mar 2016

Arab Center for Engineering Studies (ACES) has been providing support in several capacities to the new American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) student chapter which was initiated at the University of Jordan in August 2015. Dr. Naeem Abdulhadi (Deputy Group CEO for Operations) is the practitioner advisor for the new chapter, whereas Prof. Samih Kakish from University of Jordan is the faculty advisor. ACES has sponsored the various activities carried out by the chapter and has organized seminars and field trips to the students. In addition, ACES is assisting in training and mentoring the students as well as providing internship opportunities during the summer breaks.

Some of the activities carried out by the chapter include balsa wood bridge competition, treasure hunt, technical debates, engineer’s week events, field trips and seminars. “Our objective is to expose the students to practical issues and projects and to better connect the students at universities to the engineering industry and companies. We are engaging the Jordan Engineers Association, A/E Business Council and the main engineering companies in Jordan to prepare the student to enter the practical world through comprehensive trainings, internships, field trips, seminars, and personal interactions, among other initiatives” explained Dr. Naeem Abdulhadi.
