What our Construction students say

BSc (Hons) Construction Project Management degree student Mitchell Bowden is the latest in a line of Salford students who will be joining Morgan Sindall Construction in a permanent role after successfully completing a placement year:

I’ve really enjoyed the real-life working experience. The placement has allowed me to put into practice everything that the university has taught me. Morgan Sindall Construction is heavily involved in lectures at Salford, and as part of one of my modules I gave a presentation to one of the company directors. When I applied for the placement role, I was lucky enough to be interviewed by the same director on my assessment day. I was then offered a position to work on the construction site for a new building on campus.”

Dale Sookoo, BSc (Hons) Construction Project Management student said:

“Salford has a reputation for high standards in all construction disciplines. I enjoyed the programme in its entirety, and I was impressed by the support and encouragement offered by the staff.”
