Second Visit to Clay’s Lake Flood Prevention Scheme

A visit to the site of a flood prevention scheme in West Sussex provided a group of civil engineering students from the University of Brighton with a valuable glimpse of ‘what collaborative engineering work looks like’.

Taking place last Monday, October 24, around 45 students visited the Clay’s Lake site where flood prevention works are being carried out by Team Van Oord on behalf of the Environment Agency.

The visit formed part of Team Van Oord’s ongoing commitment to providing aspiring civil engineers with real life experience, and was designed to help the students develop their understanding of how theoretical practice is applied in a working environment.

The visit was organised in partnership with Dr Maria Diakoumi, Principal Lecturer in Civil Engineering in the School of Environment & Technology at the University of Brighton.
