Engineering projects progress students' studies

30 November 2015 @TeesUniNews


Students just one year into their academic studies have been learning about engineers contribution to society, while third year students have been recognised for their creativity.

A group of first year civil engineering and civil engineering with disaster management degree students took part in a day-long survey in the historic city of Durham, organised by School of Science & Engineering academic Barry Walmsley. The students were required to submit short reports on the survey as part of an educational trip introduced into the undergraduate academic calendar in order to encourage them to appreciate the nature and extent of civil engineers’ contribution to the wider society.

Meanwhile a group of four third year undergraduate civil engineering students from Teesside attended the prestigious Wood Awards 2015 ceremony held last month at the Carpenters Hall in London.

The event is by invitation only, with the students chosen due to their creative work in Innovations in Timber Design. The students expressed their gratitude towards the organisers for providing the opportunity to learn from inspiring building design solutions.
