Application Guide

The Construction Industry has a huge impact on a country's economy. All kinds of infrastructure and real estate projects are carried out by sub-units of the construction industry. The scope of the industry is incredibly broad. Architects and architectural technologists design buildings. Building experts provide technical advice on construction and property and report on the condition of the building. Civil and structural engineers are involved to ensure that project designs work in practice. Geotechnical engineers are responsible for the foundations of structures. Landscape architects aim to improve the quality of the environment by designing and managing open spaces around us. Finance specialists, site managers, masons, carpenters, joiners, demolition workers, electricians, painters, plumbers, scaffolders, and many more are important elements of an industry, which accounts for more than 10% of global GDP and employs about 7% of the global workforce, or more than 273 million people. The global construction industry’s output was valued at an estimated $10.8 trillion in 2017 and is increasing every year.
