Staff Feature - Duncan Ross - Graduate Engineer

Duncan Ross Graduate Engineer

I was originally drawn to civil engineering after attending a careers event in 2011. From that initial enthusiasm, I achieved a HND at Dundee College before venturing in to third year at Abertay University in 2014.

As part of my studies, I was given the opportunity to undertake a placement with a world-leading risk management service provider. This saw me working as part of the offshore services team, approving and certifying offshore containers and portable offshore units in accordance with DNV Standards. The placement allowed me to gain experience in delivering small work packages and to better understand the industry as a whole.

By mid-2016, having qualified with a BSc (Hons) in Civil Engineering, I was fortunate enough to gain employment with I & H Brown as a Graduate Engineer.

During my probationary period with the company in October of that year, I worked as part of the site team responsible for the construction of our Dunfermline North enabling works. This involved working closely with experienced members of staff, ensuring that our work was co-ordinated and in line with the operational requirements of I & H Brown and our Subcontractors.

At present my primary role within I & H Brown sees me assist the Estimating Team as a Support and Development Engineer. This includes the quantification of works for tendering, production of site plans using AutoCAD and LSS software, preparation of pre-qualification and tender submissions and the development of programmes for minor civils work.

As part of my training within I & H Brown’s graduate programme, I am and working hard towards attaining IEng MICE status. Professional development of this nature allows me the chance to track and document the skills, knowledge and experience that I gain, both formally and informally as I work.

On a personal level, I have a keen interest in golf, and currently play off a handicap of five at my home club. I am also an avid Scotland rugby supporter and have had a season ticket for the past five years. However, my main interest outside work is astronomy. I have dabbled in astrophotography from time to time but have only recently become more serious about the hobby and the chance that it gives me to appreciate and explore the wonders of the night sky.
