Being a civil engineer, and having worked on the analysis and design of buildings and roads, I was always striving to broaden my horizons. When AUS launched the MUP program I found it a great opportunity to join and pursue a master's degree in this field. As a pioneer, I consider myself lucky that I made the right choice at that time and graduated with recognized credentials from a well recognized university and with a specialty that became close to my heart.
After graduation, I joined Parsons International as an urban planning group leader. Working with international consultants in Dubai enriched my knowledge by exposing me to plans and projects, standards and common practices at different levels and at different government authorities. I then joined Dubailand LLC a subsidiary company of Dubai Holding. I work in the Project Management Department, undertaking the work of urban planning. I mainly review and give recommendations for concept plans, preliminary and final master plan reports.
