The School of Civil Engineering will be running its popular series of industrial lectures on Tuesdays during term-time at 5pm in the School, in room G34. All students in the School, and anyone interested in the topic, are welcome. Each talk will be given by an engineer working in the civil engineering (or related) industry and the series will prove interesting, informative and an opportunity to meet potential employers – as well as giving students an insight into what they might be doing themselves in the not-to-distant-future.
