This Summer, we have three undergraduate placement students joining us in Sheffield.

 James Browne: "Having just finished my second year doing Civil Engineering at Liverpool John Moores University, I started a 12 week long placement with Eastwood and Partners at the beginning of the summer. 3 weeks in and I have already been involved in a variety of projects such as plotting the drainage for housing developments and analysing flood data provided by the Environment Agency. My time with Eastwoods is helping me to make the jump from university education to working with real life industry projects, in a highly professional and responsible environment."

Georges Moss: "I’m Georges and I’ve just finished the third year of my Civil and Structural Engineering degree at the University of Sheffield. I’m currently carrying out structural design for a new housing estate near Reading. I’m enjoying the placement so far as the work I’ve been doing has been varied and interesting, and it’s very satisfying to know that what I’m designing is actually going to be built.

 Joe Morris: "I have just finished my 3rd year of Civil and Structural Engineering at Sheffield University. At my time at Eastwood and Partners I am hoping to gain some hands on experience to back up my university knowledge; I have already been involved on a housing project for Persimmon Homes carrying out structural calculations, which is something I have not done before and has allowed me to learn from a wide range of engineers.

We hope each of them enjoys their time with Eastwood & Partners, and picks up a wealth of new skills and knowledge to use in their future careers.
