'I learned so much at City, and not just from what I gained during lectures, but also from what I learnt from the people I met.'

Why did you choose to study at City University London?

Because I wanted to study civil engineering with architecture and not many universities in the UK offer that degree. I also wanted to be based in London, as it is a multi-cultural environment.

What did you enjoy most about your course?

The course was interesting and very challenging. However, I enjoyed tackling problems and the lecturers were great at supporting us. I met some great people during my time at City.

What was the highlight of your time at City University London?

The highlight of my time at City University London was strangely working in the 24 hours lab, meeting the other students in there doing the same thing as you, getting little sleep and trying to revise as much as possible before exams. Then in the summer, heading to university to pick up our results and meeting other people on the course to celebrate together.

How did City prepare you for your chosen career path?

I learned so much at City, not just the things I learned from lectures, but also from the people I met. Living in London during my time at City also meant more opportunity to find the right company to work for. I attended a career event in London when I found my first job with Parsons Brinckerhoff on the tunnels team before joining London Bridge Associates.
