LTA & SIT Set Up a Centre for Infrastructure and Tunnel Engineering (CITE)

Singapore — (SBWIRE) — 02/10/2022 — Infrastructure and tunnel engineering is a highly specialised area of civil engineering jobs and one that is increasingly in demand. In Singapore, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) and Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) have now entered into a collaboration to help develop this expert field. The partnership is called the Centre for Infrastructure and Tunnel Engineering (CITE). It is focused on increased collaboration in research and development with respect to infrastructure and tunnel engineering, as well as establishing educational and training programmes focused on this area of civil engineering jobs. Increasing global urbanisation means that mega-infrastructure projects, such as those for waste or utility services, are now often being built underground, making these skills absolutely vital to future development. Particularly in a country like Singapore where land is scarce, future projects – such as rail and road lines – will continue to go deeper underground in order to help make better use of above-ground spaces and nurture natural environments.

The collaboration between LTA and SIT is just one example of the investment currently being poured into future infrastructure projects that solve the problem of a lack of land availability. LVI Associates has worked with many such partnerships and organisations seeking bright talent to fill civil engineering jobs that can innovate to help solve the most pressing current issues and create a better future. The firm’s expertise includes a broad range of fields, including hiring for technology, renewable energy, transportation, water and environmental and building services.
