Industrial Placement Presentations

On Wednesday 13 March 2013, the undergraduate students in construction* who are on placement at the moment paid a visit to the Department to share their experiences so far with staff and second year students (who will be going on placement later this year).

As well as taking photos I stayed to listen to some of the presentations and it was great to see how the students were enjoying the world of work and also how it had (in some cases) changed their ideas for their future career. A lesson in how sometimes things work out in ways you might not have expected. So, is the industrial placement year a good idea? Yes. More from the students who have been on placement here.
