"Studying for my undergraduate degree at the University of Dundee’s School of Engineering, Physics and Mathematics was such a good experience. I had no hesitation in leaving my job in the construction industry, and coming back to obtain a Master in order to become a chartered Civil Engineer." - David Kingsmill, from Country Down in Northern Ireland, MSc Civil Engineering (2013)
"The survey camp at the end of second year was a lot of fun – in fact, it was one of the highlights of my degree. Following my 2nd and 3rd year of study, I took part in summer work placements, which proved to be a huge advantage when I was applying for jobs at the end of my degree and I’m now a Nuclear and Defence Graduate Engineer at a large consultancy firm." - Jocelyn Trottet, from York in England, MEng Civil Engineering Design & Management (2013)
