Giving graduates a boost

William Bald Scholarship presented to Ulster University student.

GRAHAM Construction has been working with two Belfast universities to boost professionalism, competence and knowledge-sharing for young people in the civil engineering industry.

The William Bald Scholarship is another successful joint venture between GRAHAM Construction and Farrans, with the two contractors teaming up to help highlight and reward the brightest new talent in engineering.

In December 2017, Emer Murnaghan of GRAHAM Construction and Joanne Lennox of Farrans, joined Alan Strong, UUJ Visiting Professor in Civil Engineering, at the Ulster University Graduation Ceremony, where Iye Negedu, a new MSc Infrastructure Engineering graduate of the University, was awarded with the William Bald Scholarship.

Emer commented: “We are pleased to present this award to Iye who is a very worthy recipient.”

Iye, who is originally from Nigeria, was selected by the university to receive the scholarship, based on her outstanding dissertation which was submitted earlier in 2017.
