Overview

The Graduate & Student Conference is an annual all-day event for young civil engineering professionals and students. This year’s programme features an impressive list of speakers exploring the theme ‘Collaboration is Key’. 

Our speakers will cover topics including the F1 circuit in Florida, tunnel construction techniques and the design of Hinkley Point C roads and networks.

We are also pleased to confirm a workshop session on the Get It Right Initiative (GIRI).

As always, and after a long absence of in-person sessions, there will be plenty of opportunity to network with your peers and make new connections.

This event is kindly sponsored by SNC-Lavalin Atkins.
