Returning placement students present

Final year civil engineering students at NTU have given presentations on their placement year and discussed the interesting projects they worked on.

Final year civil engineering students at NTU have given presentations on their placement year and discussed the interesting projects they worked on. Placements included working on construction artificial surfing arenas with Wardell Armstrong, to looking at improving environmental features of Clifton Campus with NTU.

Once all the presentations had been delivered, the students were judged by a panel to commend the best work. BSc (Hons) Civil Engineering Course Leader and Undergraduate Course Manager Richard Humphries said:

"The competition was extremely fierce. I'm glad I didn't have to make some of the difficult decisions the judges did. All seven finalists can be extremely proud of their performance, and confident in their abilities as they look ahead to professional life after graduation. They all have bright futures ahead of them."

He went on to describe how this event highlighted the value of a placement year and why NTU has such powerful links with industry.

The winning presentation was awarded to BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering student Mazlum Sarican who said:

"The experience benefited me in many ways. I had the opportunity to improve my interpersonal and time management skills, as well as my knowledge of the industry. I also networked with many experienced individuals who have played a key role in me securing more summer work before my postgraduate course, and then to a graduate job."
