Posted on: 23 June, 2017
University College of Estate Management (UCEM) is delighted to celebrate its second graduation ceremony, following receipt of Taught Degree Awarding Powers in 2013. With more than 200 students competing their studies in the recent cohort, the UCEM senior leadership and academic teams are looking forward to welcoming graduands and their families to this special occasion, hosted at Reading Town Hall. Programmes including Bachelor’s and Master’s in Built Environment professional disciplines including Quantity Surveying, Building Surveying, Real Estate, Construction Management and our MBA in Real Estate and Construction will be awarded.
Award of the Chapman Adkin prize has been made to two graduands, Darren Bennett and Willie Aherne. The Chapman Adkin award has been made available to UCEM by two of its former academic staff and was introduced to recognise the performance of those who have shown special endeavour in undertaking a UCEM course.
Ashley Wheaton, Principal at UCEM, commented, “I offer my sincerest congratulations to all our graduands on successfully graduating from your UCEM programme of study. I am immensely proud that you are joining our growing community of UCEM Alumni, now some 150,000 strong.”
He added, “The need for highly-qualified, vocational graduates in the Built Environment disciplines has never been more apparent or necessary. I cannot overemphasize the important part in which our graduates now play in resolving the emerging challenges within the Built Environment.”
Jane Fawkes, Vice Principal at UCEM, said, “I’d like to offer my personal congratulations to all those graduates of UCEM who are receiving their awards today. It is a special day where you can celebrate with your family and friends, in recognition of the hard work, discipline and commitment you have demonstrated to ensure successful completion of your studies, which many of you will have completed alongside full or part-time employment. UCEM is very proud of your success.”
