Civil Engineering students celebrated at industry sponsored prize-giving event
Successful students from across NTU’s undergraduate and postgraduate civil engineering courses were recognised for their achievements at an event attended by academic staff and industry sponsors.
Representatives from a range of companies and accreditation bodies visited the NTU event to award prizes for academic achievement, course, and project work to students on all six civil and structural engineering courses.
The awards ranged from recognition of outstanding performances across all years of study, to a Women in Civil Engineering award, and prizes for coursework projects in areas including structural engineering, ground engineering, and engineering surveying.
The event was opened by guest speaker Adam Onyett, an NTU alumni, SHEQ & Pre-Construction Director at D Morgan plc and Current Chairman of CECA (North West). Adam reflected on his career journey, his passion for civil engineering and engineering surveying, and the impact of changes and technology throughout his years in industry.
Following the prize giving, students and guests had the chance to speak to the industry representatives, discussing latest developments in the field and get valuable tips and advice for their careers.
Syed Mohyuddin, Head of Civil Engineering at NTU, said: “It was great to welcome our students, accompanying guests and our industry sponsors. The presentation by Adam was informative and engaging.
"I trust we all enjoyed the evening recognising and celebrating the success of our students some of whom have started their career in ‘highly skilled employment’.”
