My name is Oliver Howell and I am a student at the University of Southampton studying MEng Civil Engineering with Architecture. Shortly after starting my 3rd year in October 2012 I had to suspend my studies due to medical reasons, but am returning in October 2013 to complete my 3rd year.

I am very interested in design and the relationship between architecture and engineering. I am hoping to pursue a career in structural engineering upon my graduation.
I am involved in Cameroon Catalyst. A student run charity that supports development in rural Cameroon.
In my spare time I play lacrosse for the mens and mixed teams at the university. I also play the Cello and am a member of the university orchestra.
