Scott Dalton, studying Civil Engineering MEng, beat off competition from around the country to win a national award.
Scott took the Construction, Engineering and Design Undergraduate of the Year title, sponsored by Laing O’Rourke, the international engineering, construction and asset management company.
The finals of National Graduate Recruitment Awards 2016, organised by TARGETjobs, were held in London’s Canary Wharf and TV journalist and newsreader Fiona Bruce was on hand to present Scott’s award.
Scott, whose prize is an all-expenses paid international summer work placement on the Motiongate theme park project with Laing O’Rourke in Dubai, started work as one of Hyder Consulting’s youngest-ever employees before leaving to study. Since then he has spent time on placements with EM Highways and most recently Balfour Beatty’s central Health & Safety team.
