New Developments in Shell Stability - Prof. Hutchinson

Posted on by Remi B Pelletier

Don't miss this special guest lecture by the fascinating Prof John Hutchinson from Harvard University!

Shells are everywhere - silos, pipes, spheres, domes... - and highly efficient but small imperfections have large impacts on their load bearing capacities. Advances in research enable codes to develop and become more optimised. Prof Hutchinson has personally worked on the topic and will discuss his research and recent progress on the topic of shell stability!

When? Tuesday 17th March at 6pm

Where? SKEM 201, Imperial College London, South Kensington campus

We've been nominated!

Posted on by Remi B Pelletier

Yes, you read that right: we've been nominated by the National Undergraduate Employability Awards as a top-ten University Society in the UK!


What's the Best University Society NUE Award?

In the NUE's own words, "This award celebrates societies who have a real passion for supporting their members with employability skills.". Out of the huge number of societies and clubs present in UK universities, we have been selected within the top 10

The award is organised by RateMyPlacement and sponsored by Entreprise Rent-A-Car!


What does this nomination mean to us?

It rewards CivSoc's hard work to help our members engage with professionals, discover the different fields of civil engineering and secure that special internship, graduate role or job they're looking for!

If you're part of a company, this is proof that we deliver! Interested in a partnership? Find info here and email us at!

We're achieving this by running:

  • the yearly CivSoc Careers Fair,
  • Shell Day, with its technical talk, application workshop, CV Clinic, and networking session,
  • industry talks: this year so far with Ramboll, Hawkins/Brown Architects, AECOM, Metis Consultants and Vinci,
  • site visits to 101 George Street - world's tallest modular construction - and to Chiswick Park Footbridge by Expedition Engineering,
  • the first Negotiation Masterclass to instill essential soft skills
  • university visit and site visits during our yearly International Tour!
  • and more next term!
