My placement at Transport for London

David Roddy
BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering

“Taking a year out on placement is the best decision I have ever made in my path towards becoming an engineer. Working with Transport for London (TFL), not only have I gained valuable experience and training, but have been able to make significant progress into my professional development, signing off a quarter of the attributes required to become a Chartered Engineer and producing evidence for attaining EngTech status at the end of my placement year. I’d say my main take away from this experience is to trust my ability to handle responsibility. When I first started I was nervous about having ownership of a project; now I have managed, or am currently managing, 7 projects with long term impacts and deliverables.”
