David Oyegbile and Quico Candea Lopez, both graduates of the MEng in Mechanical Engineering, fought off tough competition to secure two of the three graduate places.
David Oyegbile took up the role of a field engineer to manage the works of Gatwick contractors. He said: “It’s about balancing time schedules with quality and safety. I love coming to work every day as there are always different challenges and problems to solve – it’s exciting.”
Quico Candea Lopez's role as a project engineer has been to develop the scope of projects before works commence: “My job is to eliminate problems before we start building things. I’m looking to ensure we have enough gas, electricity and water supplies, as well as the most difficult one – drainage.
“What has surprised me about working at Gatwick is the scale and pace of the place. You have to continue developing it while 115,000 passengers are going through it every day.”
