Students from the department of civil engineering benefit from our Visiting Professors Scheme

Civil Engineering Visiting Professors

The Royal Academy of Engineering award visiting professors scheme provides financial support for experienced industrial engineers to deliver face-to-face teaching and mentoring at a host institution for three years. Engineering undergraduates benefit from an enhanced understanding of the role of engineering and the way it is practiced, along with its challenges and demands.  

Steve Kay, Head of Innovation will provide a series of lectures at undergraduate level on BEng Civil Engineering with Sustainability and Water-Engineering-MSc, Students will work in teams under the supervision of Steve on a real project of Anglian Water for water and wastewater management. The project will serve as a main vehicle for integrating student knowledge and skills developed during these seminars.

Students will obtain a thorough understanding of industrial systems and processes for water engineering and how this links with basic principles. They will acquire the skills to confront design challenges and provide realistic solutions for the water industry. The industrial focus on the course will make students better candidates for the water industry; consequently, they will be well equipped to tackle interview questions, increasing their chances to secure a job. Steve will share his valuable experience and provide students with insight to facilitate them to become chartered engineers. What the partnership will mean for students

The Civil Engineering department at Brunel has set the target of strengthening its links with key industrial partners. We have a long history of visiting lecturers from industry being fully integrated into our programmes which has been very successful and is supported by students.
