Becoming a recognised member of an internationally recognised standard demonstrates capability of independent technical judgement in and application of engineering principles.
The desire to self-improve in this way also opens the door for further professional development and networking opportunities.
Tamador, who now holds the post-nominal letters MIMM, also has a PhD with distinction in structural engineering and has over eight years’ work experience in the construction industry after graduating from Damascus University in Syria.
