Shahnawaz  - Class of 2020 

Ex LDE UTC Learner Shahnawaz Proud to become Trainee Quantity Surveyor





Featuring Rhianna Patel

During my time at LDE, I studied a Technical Level 3 Extended Diploma in Construction and the Built Environment, A Level Art and Design, Level 3 Mathematical Studies and also undertook an Extended Project Qualification. The support of the staff and knowledge I was able to gain from the UTC, is what made me who I am and able to get to where I am today alongside my hard work and determination. The unique opportunities given to work with employers on site, such as Bouygues, has allowed me to gain the necessary skills and knowledge, to expand upon, for creating a high-quality standard of work that is required at university. The ability to network with employers is key; having contacts within the construction industry allowed me to gain a work experience placement, at LDE.

Currently a second-year undergraduate student, studying a BSc Hons in Architectural Technology, at De Montfort University, Leicester. I have been an active member of the community through volunteering to being a committee member in a society. I have secured a 12-week Virtual Internship with Think Pacific about the Fiji Islands, in relation to the environment.

I aim to leave behind a mark on the world through working within the construction industry on a range of building projects; focussing on the design aspect through the profession of Civil Engineering or Architectural Technology.
