“My experience as alumni of the MSc SEI helped me identify new business opportunities and innovative approaches about Building systems as well as implement the lessons learned in complex engineering projects. Moreover, I am excited to see that with the latest standard in Building Automation (BACnet SC Nov. 2019), the BMS industry has taken into account cyber security measures that I addressed through my thesis in the programme seven years ago. Added to this, through my participation to the programme I met my fellow alumni Elie Kfoury, the CEO of IntelliCasa that we managed to build a strong team and friendship by working together in international engineering and research projects regarding innovative technologies in the built environment (AI, Machine learning etc).“
