UoE / Heriot-Watt Student Competition! 17 – 18th Feb 2015

Back to Past Sites

We are now taking registrations for our Edinburgh student competition.


DATE/TIME: 17-18th February 2015, 9-5.30pm (plus free drinks reception until 7.30pm on wednesday)
VENUE: Architecture Department, ECA (Edinburgh College of Art), Lauriston Place, Edinburgh


The event is open to ALL construction industry students at the University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt University. It is a fast-paced two-day team event giving you an unparalleled insight into what it is like to work in a real interdisciplinary team in practice. In two days you will:


* Visit a real, multi-million pound construction site
* Work in a small team of students made up from all different disciplines: expand your horizons!
* Receive personal feedback, in small groups, from professionals practicing in Edinburgh from all construction disciplines
* Have the opportunity to meet and speak informally with high-level professionals in key firms in the local region
* Be challenged, with your team, to step up to a series of short tasks in the planning, delivery and construction of a new development in Edinburgh

This is an excellent training opportunity to step outside the confines of your discipline and find out more about your part in getting stuff built in an interdisciplinary team. The experience is approved and supported by ICE, IStructE, RIBA, CIBSE, RICS, RTPI and others: it is a great thing to put on your CV and mention in your job or chartership interviews.

– And did we mention there were prizes for the best-performing teams?!
