Safwan is moving closer to his goal of becoming a qualified civil engineer.
'The facilities here are second-to-none.'
I liked the approach this university takes to my course. And the facilities here are second-to-none.
Civil engineering is a combination of many scientific specialisms, including mechanics, hydraulics, geotechnics, materials science and statistical analysis. I’ve learned how to apply mathematics and scientific knowledge to real-life situations and problems that arise from creating and maintaining structures, taking into account environmental, financial, legal and ethical considerations. The best thing about this course is my lecturers – they are all fantastic. Very helpful, very intelligent and they’re good, fun, nice people too.
I completed a summer placement which was an amazing experience. I learned a lot, but most importantly about team work.
I am a member of the taekwondo club, and I’m also volunteering in a number of programmes such as the English café.
Yes, I have had a lot of support from student services – the careers service helped me with my CV and job interviews.
Teesside University has taught me a lot of things. I improved my employability skills and subject knowledge which is helping me get closer to my goals. I’ve had the best time of my life in Teesside.
