MEng Civil and Structural Engineering Student Highly Commended

MEng Civil and Structural Engineering Student Highly Commended

MEng Civil and Structural Engineering student Mary Griffiths has been highly commended for her project and presentation in the recent Women in Property Northern Scotland Student Awards Programme 2020.

This is a fantastic achievement for Mary, and it is a great honour for the School of Engineering.

‘The National Student Awards seek out the best Built Environment degree students, highlighting to industry the necessity to link with Universities early in the education process and improve the students’ knowledge of the career options available to them. Over the past 13 years, over 1,080 students have been through the Awards programme.’

Here is what Mary had to say about her experience: 

“I think the interview/presentation went extremely well. I was given some feedback from all the judges before I left the interview and they were very pleased with my CV and the presentation I gave, with comments on how professional and engaging I was. The whole experience, from start to end has definitely enhanced a few of my personal qualities by going out of my comfort zone and doing the presentation in front a group of professionals. 

“Further feedback explained I was immediately engaged with the judges with a clear voice and pace, creating a great energy and enthusiasm throughout. Judges concluded I was a strong candidate with lots to offer the industry. I am overwhelmed with the feedback and I greatly appreciate this opportunity I was presented with.”

Currently about to move into her 4th year of studying Civil Engineering, Mary is originally from Shropshire, England. Fun fact: The famous Civil engineer Thomas Telford had a Shropshire town (Telford) named after him. She stated ‘Maybe this sub conscientiously made me choose civil as the discipline to study’. 

Mary was nominated for the awards by Professor Ana Ivanovic after the high academic performance shown in her first 2 years. Mary felt overwhelmed after receiving nomination “it came as a surprise and made me feel proud to be a greater part of the university as well as knowing that all my hard work is being noticed”

When Mary is not studying she is always carrying out extra research and trying to further develop her knowledge as well as being a member of the TAU Racing society at the University.
