The Construction Engineering and Design Undergraduate of the Year Award went to Maria Canellas who is studying Structural and Environmental Engineering, here in the Department.
The award was sponsored by Laing O'Rourke and involved Maria completing a series of challenging online tests, application forms, interviews and assessment exercises. The award means that Maria wins a summer work placement in one of Laing O'Rourke's international operations, possibly in Australia, Canada or Hong Kong.
Nearly 4,000 undergraduates took part and the best 120 were invited to the awards event in April hosted by the Rt. Hon. Michael Portillo. This award was one of 12 presented on the day. Each award is sponsored by a leading graduate recruiter KPMG, BT, Morgan Stanley, Airbus, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, EDF Energy, E.ON, Mayer Brown, RBS, Ernst and Young, Laing O’Rourke and Barclays Wealth. Each sponsor offers a fantastic internship to the winner, often involving time spent abroad.
Maria is a 3rd year undergraduate at Homerton College.
