School of Civil Engineering and Surveying
I am very pleased to be able to welcome you as either a new, or a continuing, student to the School of Civil Engineering and Surveying (SCES).
I encourage you all to make full use of the presentations and other activity sessions that we have arranged for you during Induction Week. You will find details of these in the various Induction Timetables via the link below.
We recognise that 'induction' is an on-going process, and that there can be too much to take in and remember in a single week. To support this on-going process, we will continue to provide further reference material, web links and presentations on this Welcome web page. Some of these resources will be available to you before you come to Portsmouth, and others will be added before, during, or after our formal Induction Week, so remember to come back for a fresh look.
Whilst everything that we want to tell you is 'important', you must ensure that you are able to check your University of Portsmouth email account on a regular basis, as this will be our primary means of getting information to you (such as informing you when we have added something new to our Welcome site).
One thing that you cannot do by email is to get to know your fellow students and staff. You need the support and friendship of students and staff to help thoughout your period of study, and making the most of the timetabled information and social sessions during Induction Week is one of the best ways to start forming those important relationships - please enjoy this opportunity.
Dr Dominic Fox, Head of School
