Site visits are an important part of your learning. Visiting a real time construction project or design office allows you to develop a greater understanding of how civil engineering theory is put into practice.
A typical site visit will involve a presentation from the site team, a safety briefing and a tour of the project. It will give you personal experience of a construction site and exposure to the technical language used – and also the Scottish weather!
The visits also allow you to learn about project management practice related to health and safety, environmental issues and logistics management.
