Carlos Cunha

Great accomplishments require big ambitions.

Carlos is a civil engineer who has built a career as a construction manager, designer and as an academic. After his degree and because of his own academic success Carlos was invited to lecture. His soft skills and analytical mindset led him to assume the technic direction of the Civil Engineering Laboratory, the coordination of the Civil Engineering degree, and also to belong to the Board of the university campus, all at ISEIT-Mirandela.

To pursue greater challenges, Carlos went to Luanda and Benguela where he directed the business clusters DAE Piaget and worked in project management of large scale projects. More than a technician, he is recognized by his peers as a process facilitator and a person who creates bridges between all parts involved. After this, Carlos returned to Portugal to conclude his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering and applied for the Executive MBA to achieve more business management skills.

To relax, Carlos enjoys walking and sitting with friends to talk about politics and business. If he could be granted one wish, he would like to have, once again, that inner peace one can have only as a child. For now, the way is to keep on making things happen, and accomplishment will follow.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Mark Twain
