What would I do?

  • Prepare technical schedules. 
  • Plan and manage CAD documentation of design work.

What would a typical day look like?

No two days are the same, but as an overview…

What is life really like?

“BuroHappold offers me a great experience where I have to step out of my comfort zone, and encourages me to learn so many new things even non-engineering skills ! I’ve met such friendly and helpful people since joining. Working here has provided me with a unique opportunity to work closely with some of the world’s leading engineers on new and exciting projects. Not only has it inspired me but also given me confidence in what I could achieve and contribute as an engineer as my career develops”.
