Market Street

Every October our civil engineering work placement providers are invited to Abertay to take part in an event known as ‘Market Street’. In the past, this has included Balfour Beatty, Transport Scotland, SWECO, BEAR Scotland, and Waterman Group.

At this event, our students have the opportunity to network with each of the organisations and get a sense of the company they’d like to complete their work placement with.

There is also a series of short talks about the engineering sector and a networking lunch.

This year, we’d like to invite staff representatives from each of the local schools to join us, as well as any students who are interested in or thinking about an engineering career. We hope this event will be of use to you in many ways: –

  1. When speaking to your students about our Civil Engineering programme
  2. Gaining insight into the student experience at Abertay University
  3. Receiving information about the engineering sector and the wide-ranging career opportunities
  4. Taking away print material about our Civil Engineering programme

The day will run as follows:

Time   Description
10am - 10:30am Welcome Tea, coffee, biscuits and a welcome presentation from David Blackwood and Cornelia Doerich-Stavridis
10:30am - 11am Tour of Abertay Tour of University from engineering staff and 4th year students.
