“I will be looking after these degrees and certificates from all aspects including course content and student enrolments,” Mr Nathwani told The Fifth Estate. “I am now also a senior lecturer and coordinator of various units including BIM, mechanical services, building services, project management and operational facilities management.
“At the same time I have also been appointed a director of ARBS Foundation, involved with scholarships and grants for deserving HVAC industry participants.”
