LEVEL OF STUDY
Shaan Ali shares her experience of studying for a masters part-time at Surrey, and what her day-to-day work involves as Senior Project Manager at Atkins, seconded to the M25 DBFO contract.
An MSc in Water and Environmental Engineering at Surrey set Anusha Shah on the path towards her current role as Senior Director, Resilient Cities, at Arcadis.
Being able to see how some of the calculations and engineering principles I’ve learned at university are applied in real life, and using software to do this, has been really interesting.
As well as enabling me to gain a vast amount of technical knowledge, my placement also gave me a valuable insight into the way the construction industry operates.
The set-up for distance learners is second-to-none at Surrey. It’s very interactive, accessible, and I have felt very much part of the class.
Completing a Foundation Year and progressing into the first year is like moving into a house that’s already a home. The Foundation Year not only supplied the key knowledge, but it helped me adapt to University life.
I was part of the Surrey ICE Scholarship scheme. This meant that at the time of joining Mott MacDonald as a graduate civil engineer, I’d already had 16 months of experience there. Without that scheme and the links Surrey has with industry, I don’t think I’d be sitting in this job today!
“The fact Surrey is a campus university was a key selling point in deciding to come here. I liked the community feel and the fact everything is close by and convenient.
Our masters students go on to a range of exciting roles in industry and research, often applying their knowledge to global challenges. On graduation day we caught up with Vincent Yuan, the graduate speaker at the ceremony who was sponsored by the Hong Kong government to study on Surrey’s MSc Bridge Engineering.
