A young civil engineer has been commended for his achievements on a college course.

Alex Fitzgerald, from Watton, graduated from City College Norwich after completing a two-year HND Civil Engineering course.

The 20-year-old, who has worked for Attlebotrough consulting engineers Plandescil during his studies, was presented with the course's award for excellence, sponsored by Clancy Consulting, at the college's graduation ceremony at Norwich Cathedral.

Mr Fitzgerald is now continuing his civil engineering studies by progressing on to a BSc Civil Engineering degree at the University of Suffolk, a day release course which will be available at City College Norwich from next year.

Prior to the HND course he won an award for his achievements on the Level 3 Extended Diploma in Construction and the Built Environment, which he completed while gaining on-site building experience.

Mr Fitzgerald said: 'After completing my level 3 construction course I didn't think any further than the HND, but the more I got into it I realized that I was capable of pushing myself further.

'Getting this award makes all of the hard work on the HND worthwhile and having something else to show for it definitely helps for the future.'
