A group of our Civil Engineering students visited the site of a flood prevention scheme in West Sussex to gain an insight into what collaborative engineering looks like.
The visit to Clay’s Lake was organised with Mackley and was designed to help students develop their understanding of how theory works in practice.
Civil Engineering student Lottie Ashcroft said “We learned about all aspects of the project, including sustainability, planning and design, whilst gaining an insight into the various job and responsibilities of civil engineers.”
Scott Sedon adds “The visit gave me a good insight of what collaborative engineering work looked like, and also allowed me to question the professionals which increased my depth of understanding of the engineering world.”
David Knapp, Mackley’s Business Development Manager, said: “This is the second group of students to visit Clay’s Lake and both parties have been a credit to the University of Brighton.
“Their collective appetite for learning and passion for civil engineering was very apparent, and it was a pleasure to spend time with them and explain the work we are carrying out.”
