  • Sophie Ovens

    “I learnt so much from these experiences which can’t be taught in a lecture theatre”

    I have always liked and had an interest in buildings, when I was about 16 I completed 1 week work experience where I saw some blueprint plans and I realised this fitted with my enjoyment of maths and decided to pursue a career in engineering.

  • Patrick Gardiner

    “It is so rewarding when you get a good piece of work done”

    From a young age, building structures out of toy bricks, I always liked buildings and architecture but leaned towards the problem-solving side of things.

  • Thomas Wright

    “My work is interesting because it’s so varied”

    I was always interested in the way things go together and using different technology; growing up I enjoyed watching as new buildings were built on local building sites and listening to my Uncle talk about his role as an Engineer.
