Congratulations to Marcin Dawydzik, who graduated in 2015 with an MEng in Structural Engineering with Architecture, on coming joint 2nd in the New Civil Engineer Graduate Award of the Year in a field of strong shortlisted candidates. 

The New Civil Engineer said that as well as simply being brilliant graduates, this year’s Graduate Awards contenders were asked to set out a plan for what they intend to do in their year as Graduate of the Year. All six finalists had great ideas, but the ideas from our winner – and our joint runners up – were truly smart and truly inspirational. That said, all six had ideas worth developing and our judges are determined to see all six develop over the next 12 months.
