Nurbolat graduated in 2014 with BEng Civil Engineering and now works as a project manager.
What does your job involve?
My job is very diverse as it includes a range of activities,tarting from engineering and design planning and ending with writing documents and even setting up meetings. I would say it is mainly about coordinating and providing interconnection between all staff members who are involved in a particular project.
What do you like most about your current job?
When I started my job I was inclined to think that somebody will always be around and guide me all the time. However, it almost did not happen and now I accept it as a blessing in disguise which taught me to take responsibility for my actions. The most challenging feature of my job is that I have to be fully responsible and have to predict all possible problems and eliminate them. Frankly, I find it really interesting and challenging.
What attracted you to City?
First of all, I had a few friends who were about to complete their BEng studies at City University. Overall, the feedback regarding the educational system was very good as they were surrounded with a brilliant academic environment. Moreover, I acquainted myself with the course structure and found it suitable for myself. I liked both core and optional modules.
What one piece of advice would you give someone preparing for their A-levels, Baccalaureat or other?
Probably the best thing to do for them is to focus on the subjects that will be related to their future Degree and Career. During my high school time, I concentrated mostly on subjects such as Mathematics and Physics, which helped a lot whilst doing my 1st year in Civil Engineering.
