FUTURE civil engineers will be given advice about the career at a seminar next week.

The event at Hampshire County Council’s offices in Winchester has been organised by the council and the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE).

It is being held prior to a professional review later in the year where candidates are interviewed by two senior civil engineers.

Newly-qualified civil engineers will give people interview techniques during the seminar on Tuesday, August 14.

Steve Hyde, assistant regional director of ICE South East England, said: ‘Becoming a fully qualified civil engineer is not easy and involves gaining a broad range of civil engineering experience, followed by a professional review where applicants are interviewed by two senior and experienced civil engineers.

‘This is an excellent opportunity for the next generation of civil engineers to hear what actually happens at a professional review meeting and to ask questions so they know exactly how to prepare and hopefully qualify.’
