The University of Southern Queensland (USQ) has welcomed Professor Sherif Mohamed as the new head of its School of Surveying and Built Environment.
Professor Mohamed joined USQ on 4 July after a 25-year academic career in construction and project management at Griffith University.
“We will continue to work hard in delivering high-quality educational programs and undertake high-impact research through collaboration and building engaged partnerships with a broad range of local and national networks,” Professor Mohamed said.
Professor Mohamed said fields such as surveying, urban and regional planning, construction management and GIS play an extremely important role in securing critical data and information for a wide range of applications.
“Clients across all sectors need accurate data to make informed decisions that impact the quality of our life,” he said.
“Studying any of these fields lead to professional careers where graduates make positive change to our society.
“They will be able to utilise latest technologies to transform our built and natural environments into safer, smarter and more sustainable cities with less pollution, better public space and more connected communities.”
