Graduate Job

Construction & Surveying, EngineeringGlasgow

Description

  • Communities around the globe are challenged to find effective ways to manage water throughout the water cycle restoring the water we use to continue sustaining the natural environment. At AECOM, our Water specialists work together worldwide to find innovative solutions to the management of water. We provide technical expertise and solutions for projects across Europe, the Middle East and Africa, in areas such as:
  • Hydraulic Modelling and Design (Surface, Potable and Foul)
  • Flood Risk Management
  • Sustainable Drainage Systems and Water Sensitive Urban Design
  • Mains Infrastructure Design (Surface, Potable and Foul)
  • Non-Infrastructure Design (Pumping Stations, Storage Tanks)
  • Hydrology and Water Resources
  • Our Civil Engineering graduates gain valuable experience working on a variety of global projects alongside a multitude of different disciplines. Our graduates are encouraged to develop their understanding of many elements within the water industry, such as hydraulic, structural and environmental design through calculations, report writing and use of engineering software. You will work alongside our experienced engineers as you develop these skills within a positive culture where learning and development is actively supported and promoted.
  • An example project is the North Glasgow Integrated Water Management Scheme, Scottish Canals. Bringing together Scottish Canals, Glasgow City Council and Scottish Water to transform Glasgow’s centuries-old canal network into a modern water management scheme. Marrying digital technology with historic infrastructure, the project created a dynamic new stormwater runoff system for the city which serves several new housing regeneration schemes and has enabled real-time, remote management of the canal’s water levels.
  • We also support our graduates to pursue their professional development through professional organisations such as ICE or CIWEM. This is further complimented by AECOM’s Graduate Development programme, providing broader development and training and an opportunity to meet with other graduates.
