The placement was a great experience, I was able to see how the theory I learn on my degree is used to solve real applied problems.
Everyone made me feel welcome and part of the team.
If there was anything I wanted to know or get help with I only had to ask.
There was always a new task to complete, no two days were the same.
This was my first placement so I wasn't given too much responsibility, however the tasks I completed did contribute to the project.
I will use these skills as I progress through my degree and further into the future.
Everyone was very friendly and did everything to assure I fitted in.
I attended several training days, including three days of induction training to the company and sea survival training.
I am excited to come back and do more placements throughout my degree, I'd particularly like to go back to the project I was on this year so I can see how a project progresses. Further ahead I hope to gain a place on Laing O'Rourke's graduate programme.
Everyone was very friendly and fun to be around, I'm looking forward to working with them again in the future.
I worked in London so quite expensive, however I took the train up every day which is also expensive!
The nine elms area is currently under development and so there isn't much by the way of nightlife in the immediate surrounding area. However, this wasn't too much of an issue for me as I had to get a train out of the city every evening.
The early talent team did a few social events for the students.
