Steven was delighted to find that New College Durham offered a university level programme that would support him with his change of career.
“I decided I wanted to pursue a different career within the civil engineering industry. I had been working in my new role for a few years, developing practical experience, and wanted to back my practical knowledge with the theory. New College Durham was close to home and offered the perfect course to support me in my new role.
“The HNC programme ticked all of my boxes and helped me to further develop my knowledge and skills in engineering. I progressed to study the HND as I recognised that gaining advanced academic skills and qualifications would allow me to progress in my chosen field of Highway Structures.
“I was impressed by the facilities as they were very modern, and the resources were great for a college providing higher education.”
