At present I am about to start my final year of study at Southampton University on their Civil Engineering MEng degree programme. I hope to continue and improve in my studies and gain a 1st class masters degree which will hopefully allow me to continue my career and progress onto a graduate program. Thus continuing on the path towards my long term aim which is to become an ICE certified chartered engineer. Having previously taken a gap year to travel and decide upon my future career, I have a clear goal of where I would like to be in the future. I aim to gain chartership and through graduate program progression schemes and move into management and hopefully help the company improve upon its overseas success.
