Please could you offer me some advice regarding my career path in Civil Engineering.
I am currently working at Gatwick Airport as a newly promoted Senior Site Agent for the main maintanence framework contractor here. We carry out various maintenance, project and now building works.
I have been with the company over 6 years now and in the industry pushing 11 years (4 of which involved various block release periods during my modern apprenticeship studying fo BETEC NVQ III and HNC in Civl Engineering).
My next aim is to become a Project Manager but also IEng accredited. The question is what is the best path to get me there??
During my appraisal it was mentioned that the company would not want me to go to unversity one day a week to do a BEng/MEng in Civil Engineering wth Project Management at Greenwhich University which sounded ideal.
Instead they recommended I look into my "Plan B" which was Open University studying for a BEng of Engineering (Q65). Which is meant to be accredited IMechE, CIBSE, IED and meets requirements for the Enginering Council under UK-SPEC. I have actually emailed ICE also and they said this course would be ok to do if I do the modules they mention, athough it is not officially accredited by them.
They did say I could get to IEng or CEng but it would take longer and need a full assessment etc.
Currently I am more on the building side of things with some civils works which is a nice refreshing challenge and it's nice to blend the two together. But I need to improve my building knowledge so they suggested maybe a night school of some sorts to find a course for that.
So in summary I want to be IEng accredited become a Project Manager and improve my knowledge both in buidling/civils theory and contractually (work suggested a Bezzant course for this).
What is the best path?
Is O.U worth doing?
How long does it take P/T with a full time job working 10-12 hous a day with 2 hours travel?
Is it too much to do the learing and go for IEng?
Sorry for the looooooong post but this is important to me and I want to get as much advice as possible. Thanks in advance for any replys!!
