Civil Engineering reunion 1975-1985

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering has celebrated the strength of its alumni community with a reunion at the University for former students.

Hosted by Colin Howard, Director of Undergraduate Programmes in Civil Engineering, and Paul Sheffield (Surrey alumnus and now CEO of Kier Group) the event on Saturday 13 July was open to alumni who graduated between 1975 and 1985, and featured campus tours and a summer barbeque.

Mr Howard, himself one of the graduating class of 1983, said: “It was great seeing everyone for the reunion. It was wonderful that everyone could catch up with one another and enjoy the barbeque, drinks and sunshine on the campus.”

The event emphasised the vitality of the Department’s alumni community, which is further demonstrated through a LinkedIn group that has over 700 members.
