A PERSONAL LETTER FROM DAVID CHANDLER, OAM FAIB

Important Industry and Academic Engagement Event – Tuesday 10th July
 
Dear Industry Colleagues,

I am writing to you in my capacity as industry engagement lead, for the Centre for Smart Modern Construction at Western Sydney University. The Centre’s Roundtable event on the 10th July, is an important opportunity for all who have an interest in the quality, and future readiness of tomorrow’s construction talent, to join-in. It will be this talent that will fuel our industry.

I urge you to register one or two of your executives to participate in this eventhere.

The Centre’s initiative involves a number of important strategies, that respond to what industry expects of a modern university construction management program, and the graduates it prepares. The foundation of this preparation is the quality of the research and academic resources, that will help inform and refresh our construction management program, to ensure it is future ready.

Through industry support, the Centre has been able to invest in 5 new areas of research endeavour, that will focus on developing leading-edge insights into the transforming nature of our industry. Not only in Australia, but internationally.  We will be introducing the researchers and the scope of work they will be undertaking on the 10th July. The Centre’s Roundtables are specifically intended to ensure that our academic supervisors, researchers and industry are engaged with these important studies from the start. We are seeking industry feedback and direction on future research, through what we believe will be an innovative series of conversations, that will occur at this and subsequent occasions.

The Roundtable will also include a presentation on the opportunities currently available at the University, to deliver specially designed post graduate study and executive learning, that can share early modern construction insights and capability building programs with your organisation. The Centre is looking to hear directly from industry, the priority areas that these programs may offer.

Educating and preparing the construction industry’s future talent is our most important investment. Making sure this investment is well directed, requires industry engagement.

Please join the conversations at the Centre’s Roundtable. We need your input to get the best outcomes. For more information about the initiative, visit: westernsydney.edu.au/c4smc

Yours sincerely,

David Chandler
