What is the most important lesson you have learned during your time at Prologis Park West London?
While at Prologis Park West London, I have learnt to master the main aspects of the job so that dealing with any challenges that arise has become second nature. My career has really taken shape since joining Volker Fitzpatrick in 2016 and I have gained an enormous amount of knowledge.
What are your plans for the future?
I plan to enroll at Brunel University for my Bachelor of Civil Engineering final year in September 2019. I am aiming for a first class honours degree. Upon graduation, I plan to proceed and study M. Eng in Civil Engineering with a major in Sustainability in the academic year 2020. In the short run leading up to returning to study, I am intent on accumulating a breadth of contracting experience with Readie Construction. To complement the experience, I also plan to get design expertise by arranging work attachment with a Civil Engineering Consultancy. From 2021 onwards, upon successful completion of my M. Eng and graduation, I aim to progress professionally towards Chartered Civil Engineer status.
What advice would you give to other young people?
The civil engineering profession is highly technical and an interesting pathway which forms the basis for all engineering domains and ultimately the advancement of our modern society. Unlike many careers, engineering offers a good challenge and the much-needed balance of indoors and outdoors work. For the young, engineering also gives a platform to shape the world around us. As the construction sector is booming, young and skilled professionals are in demand and will be the next crop of renowned professionals and, who knows, they may even become the modern-day Joseph Bazalgette or Isambard Kingdom Brunel, transforming tomorrow's spatial landscape.
