Civil engineering students travel across the UK

Our civil engineering courses have taken over 80 students across the UK to visit key sites to gain first-hand knowledge into how the civil engineering industry works.

Our civil engineering courses have taken over 80 students across the UK to visit key sites to gain first-hand knowledge into how the civil engineering industry works. Much of the content of these trips linked into projects and assignments that the students will be working on during their academic studies.

"Both these projects, and site visits, were organised by Costain, and both have been excellent. The speakers on each site explained the project extremely well, covering the key aspects of construction safety and environmental impact. They both managed to pitch the technical level just right, while always demonstrating a high level of professionalism and enthusiasm. We should look to build our relationship with Costain in the future," said Nick Prior, NTU Civil Engineering academic team member.

Future trips have already been organised alongside Skanska and will include a trip to the substantial Catthorpe Interchange works at J19 of the M1. Here, the students can get a real life example of NTU success as there is an NTU alumni who is the current Project Manager. In addition to this, there is an upcoming walking tour with Vinci of the NET2 tram works south of Nottingham station.
