Kudirat has a BEng in Civil Engineering and a Master’s degree in Construction Project Management at Loughborough University. Prior to enrolling for their MSc, Kudirat worked as a graduate civil/structural engineer at an engineering firm in Nigeria, where they gained reasonable technical expertise in the construction sector.
However, Kudirat's MSc dissertation on Building Information Modelling inspired them to pursue a career in academia so they decided to explore a research degree in the built environment. They are currently working in collaboration with WHG (Wassal Housing Group) to develop an ontology to help with costing their manufactured offsite products. The research finding will be published and, hopefully, this can be developed on a larger scale to help the construction industry standardise the costing process for manufactured products.
