Rodger Greene, a lecturer in the Department of the Built Environment, is travelling to China for a two week visit to Shanghai Normal University (SHNU). He will be teaching first year students who are studying Construction Management and discussing areas for future co-operation between WIT and SHNU. The Construction Management & Engineering programme at WIT has developed strong links with their counterparts in SHNU in recent years, with a number of students currently studying at WIT on a joint programme.
Speaking about his visit to SHNU, Rodger said “I am excited at the prospect of visiting Shanghai and meeting with the staff and students at SHNU. We have seen a number of students from SHNU successfully complete their studies with us at WIT and it will be interesting to see how Construction Management education is delivered in China.”
Prior to his departure, Rodger met with SHNU students who are currently completing their Construction Management & Engineering studies at WIT, to discuss the joint programme and his visit to Shanghai.
