Get funding and go places!

Travel is great for learning new things, widening horizons, and gives you opportunities for both professional and personal development. It's an exciting and necessary part of the job for many professional civil engineers who work on projects that cross borders, languages and cultures.

If you've considered, or already got plans for civil engineering related projects abroad in 2017 then you might be able to apply to QUEST for funding. Find out the criteria and how to apply.
