Industry experience key for Civil Engineering

Due to exclusive links with large industry players, our Civil Engineering students have been able to work closely with companies such as Balfour Beatty and Lang O’Rourke in placements to postgraduate employment.

Due to exclusive links with large industry players, our Civil Engineering students have been able to work closely with companies such as Balfour Beatty and Laing O'Rourke in placement and postgraduate employment.

Currently, we have students working for VolkerFitzpatrick down at the construction of the new Thameslink stabling yard at Ilford. The £50m project centres around the provision of additional stabling facilities at the Ilford Depot. One student on site, BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering student Bradley Saunders, said: "I have been presented with excellent opportunities since I've been here learning from my colleagues and putting my two years of studying in to practice. I've learnt a lot about procedures and systems that are used to keep a site running efficiently and received a monthly award for collaboration from the client."

VolkerFitzpatrick also has a number of NTU alumni working for them in site management duties. BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering graduate, Shae O'Sullivan said: "My duties on-site have been varied; starting initially with writing up inspection and test plans in preparation for works on-site to begin, to then moving on to more site-based setting out works. This role has given me a great insight into the pre-site preparation that is required along with being able to play my part in what is the largest infrastructure project currently being undertaken within the UK."

This is an example of one of the exclusive relationships our Civil Engineering courses have with industry and how studying at NTU can take you from education into industry.
