How did the Durham School prepare you for what you're doing now?
The Durham School taught us to become problem solvers though the engineering and construction classes, the school also taught us to be public speaker though our construction classes, and taught us to be responsible.
The Durham School's mission is to develop the engineer and constructor of the future. What do you think the future will require?
The future will require well rounded engineers and constructors who are not only technology savvy but also great leaders.
How well do you think The Durham School's emphasis on global perspective, entrepreneurship, eco-friendliness and social consciousness will translate to the changing demands facing tomorrow's leaders?
It will be very important if the Durham School begins focusing on “emphasis on global perspective, entrepreneurship, eco-friendliness and social consciousness” because the way of engineering and constructing is changing. Clients and Architects are becoming environmentally conscience therefore the way we design and construct is changing. For example by the Durham School encouraging internships in countries which are advanced in green design and building will help the students get a better understand of where our industry is going.
