As well as addressing technical concerns such as currency risk and taxation the course considers issues such as transparency and dealing with different cultural norms. What are the steps can you take to de-risk your investment? It will include case studies to provide an opportunity to apply the theory and to consider, with fellow participants, some of the practical problems faced when investing internationally.

A large amount of money has and will continue to be made in real estate investments. However, it is no secret that this industry has been hit hard by the global financial crisis and as a result it has become more and more difficult to maximise the opportunities out there.

These challenges mean that real estate investment and financing has changed and still making investments compliant with Islamic financing is even tougher. It is crucial that investors keep up with the current market changes and challenges to ensure you can exploit the opportunities that are still out there.

This course has been designed providing a practical and comprehensive introduction to the subject.

The BMTG Advanced Certificate in Cost Engineering ACCE™

Couse Overview

A succinct job description for an engineer consists of two words: problem solver.

Broadly speaking, engineers use knowledge to find new ways of doing things economically. Engineering design solutions do not exist in a vacuum but within the context of a business opportunity.

Given that every problem has multiple solutions, the issue is about how does one rationally select the design with the most favourable economic result? The answer to this question can also be put forth in two words: Engineering Economy.

Engineering Economy provides a systematic framework for evaluating the economic aspects of competing design solutions. Just as engineers model the stress on a support column, or the thermodynamic response of a steam turbine, they must also model the economic impact of their recommendations.

Engineering Economy - what is it, and why is it important? The initial reaction of many engineers to these questions is, "Money matters will be handled by someone else. They are not something I need to worry about."

In reality, any engineering project must be not only physically realizable but also economically affordable.

Understanding and applying cost principles to engineering have never been more important. Engineering is more than a problem-solving activity focusing on the development of products, systems, and processes to satisfy a need or demand.

Beyond function and performance, solutions must also be viable economically. Design decisions affect limited resources such as time, material, labor, capital, and natural resources, not only initially (during conceptual design) but also through the remaining phases of the life cycle (e.g., detailed design, manufacture and distribution, service, retirement and disposal).
