Society of Engineers - UAE signs MOU with Institution of Structural Engineers, UK
- United Arab Emirates: Tuesday, February 19 - 2013 at 11:00
- PRESS RELEASE
Engineer Essa Al Maidoor, President of Society of Engineers - UAE and Director General of Dubai Health Authority and Engineer YK Cheng, President of the Institution of Structural Engineers, UK, signed a Memorandum of Understanding between the SOE and the ISE that aims to exchange engineering expertise, organize various engineering events, conferences and seminars annually, and develop the engineering sector locally and internationally.
Eng. Maidoor said, "The United Arab Emirates is a pioneering country in different aspects; economic, social, cultural and engineering. Through this continuous development that leads to pioneering & excellence in our country, we, the Society of Engineers - UAE makes us focus more on the Quality Standards in the engineering which is the main reason of the success of the United Arab Emirate and it continuous our vision 'Towards Best Engineering Practices in the UAE'. Society of Engineers - UAE plays a leading role in collaborating with the most significant international engineering organizations worldwide which will transfer international engineering expertise to our country."
"The creation of these strategic partnerships will provide competitive environment amongst engineers, architects and technicians in all sectors of engineering. It will develop expertise and skills not only on the scope of engineering but will also includes technical issue and down to the best standards of design, quality, safety and security in projects. Collaborating with ISE will provide awareness on the importance of adapting the concept of sustainability, energy conservation and renewable energy use in all projects in the UAE and it will build a foundation of information on lessons learned from different projects to be a reference for engineers in their future projects. Also, if we search in different sciences we will find that engineering is the most important science that varies from different ranges and will discover that most structures in the earth have been done by engineering. Engineering has various fields: Architecture, Civil, Structural, Environmental, Chemical, Petroleum and Genetics. Engineering almost cover all the aspect of life, that built around human beings, How would be our life if we don't have excellence in this field? High-rise buildings, towers, various transportation systems, agricultural products and medical treatments are the result of various engineering science production," he added.
Mr. Maged Hanna, General Manager of Society of Engineers - UAE, said, "Structure is an essential subject in Engineering that we currently focusing in the UAE, which the expertise of the engineers play an important role and responsibility for the structural design and integrity of an entire system, such as a building, bridges, tunnels and many more. The role of a structural engineer today involves a significant understanding of both static and dynamic loading, and the structures that are available to resist them. The complexity of modern structures often requires a great deal of creativity from the engineer in order to ensure the structures support and resist the loads they are subjected to."
Eng. YK Cheng President of the Institute of Structural Engineers UK said, "As an Institution with global reach, developing relationships with our members and learned Society's around the world has been fundamental in our success to date. Engineers share many challenges and opportunities that stretch beyond national boundaries and we will all only make sustained progress if we can share our knowledge and collaborate in our learning and education. As President of the Institution of Structural Engineers in 2013, I am pleased and proud to be signing an agreement of co-operation with the Society of Engineers."
Eng. Martin Powell Managing Chief Executive of the Institute of Structural Engineers UK, said, "Over the past three years I have been delighted to see the growing appreciation that the Society of Engineers and the Institution of Structural Engineers have for each other's work and the contribution their respective members make towards the development of the infrastructure in Dubai and beyond. The signing of an agreement of on-going co-operation is a natural extension of our work together and promises an exciting development for the future."
