LOOKMAN OSHODI SHARING EXPERIENCE WITH PHD STUDENTS AT THE SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING, ROBERT GORDON UNIVERSITY, ABERDEEN, SCOTLAND
The fellowship, “Sustainable Infrastructure Delivery in Developing Countries” was domiciled at the Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, Scotland but with multiple visitations to Huntly, Coventry and London with stopover at Inverurie, Stonehaven, Laurencekirk, Arbroath, Dundee, Haymarket, Stoke-On-Trent, Wolferhampton and Birmingham.
During the fellowship, Lokman Oshodi was exposed to planning, delivery, operations and maintenance of different infrastructure. Experiences were shared on transportation comprising road and rail (planning, route mapping, construction, operations, scheduling, ticketing, overall consumers’ engagement and protection), water (abstraction, treatment, reticulation, supply and recycling), renewable energy to increase energy efficiency and reduce the impact of climate change, waste management, urban safety and security.
Housing, which is vital to the sustainability of urban centers in the developing countries, was also understudied. Aspects of knowledge shared on housing include planning, identification of stakeholders and beneficiaries, standards and regulations, construction processes and methods, allocation and marketing, retrofitting, maintenance and management.
