Dr Kum Wah Choy

Operational Technology Solutions Director Costain

Kum Wah has a PhD in Distributed Artificial Intelligence and applied his in-depth understanding of emerging technologies to his early work as a software engineer. He says he enjoyed solving problems with technology but also realised there’s a delicate balance between a perfect engineering solution and what’s commercially viable. “To solve a client’s challenge, we have to ensure what we put forward is commercially and technically practical and sustainable,” he says. For that reason, he decided to return to study. He completed a Master in Business Administration (MBA) and now focuses his attention on helping clients turn their ambitious visions into firm plans for the future.
