The Civil Engineering Cadre to the Islamic Republic of Iran (CEC) will be sent as a “bridge to help the development of civil engineering skills” in Iran.
The Iranian government has previously promised to send civil engineers to the country to help improve the countrys infrastructure and infrastructure projects, but the CEC will not be involved in the projects themselves.
In a press release issued on Friday, the Ministry of Civil Engineering said the cadre would have two years to reach their goal and they will then receive a training programme.
“The cadre is going to be able to carry out engineering projects in areas such as building, drainage, electrical transmission and other infrastructure.
They will also be able take part in the civil engineering programme in Iran,” the ministry said.
Civil engineering students will also take part at the country’s major scientific and technological institutes, including the National Academy of Sciences, the Islamic Development University and the National University of Defense Technology, among others.
There are around 60,000 civil engineers in Iran, according to the Iranian Institute of Civil and Administrative Engineers.
