I am aware that fluid flow plays an important part in the extraction of oil and gas. This was an area, which was also touched upon during my 2 week work placement at a local engineering company. I was involved in a team on a number of projects lead by the head engineer. This gave me an insight in the wide ranging uses an Engineering degree can have in a different array of jobs.

In the summer of 2007 I worked for a medium sized solicitors firm for approximately 6 weeks. I was able to experience the working life in an office environment. Meeting deadlines, working to a specific schedule, being flexible and learning how to work within new systems, were all basic tasks which prepare an individual for the time when one starts
