This event has now ended


Civil engineering encompasses everything that is is part of our daily lives and that would be hard to live without! These include the roads we travel on, the pavements we walk on, the schools we attend, the offices we work in, the hospitals we visit, the water that comes out of our taps, the water we flush away, the lights we turn on and much, much more.

Civil engineers design, create and connect the world around us, but how did they become civil engineers and what do they actually do at work?

Join our panel of civil engineers working in the Midlands to learn about their engineering backgrounds, educational routes, and career journeys so far. Speakers will include: 

  • Sally Boddy, regional engineer, Canal & River Trust
  • Grainne Murray, delivery manager, Environment Agency
  • John Mosuela, design coordinator, Mott MacDonald

Aimed at Sixth Form students with an interest in science, maths, engineering or technology (STEM) subjects, this event is for those who may be considering civil engineering as a career or simply want to find out more about the sector.
