Former Civil Engineering HNC student Suleman Mukhtar is flying high after completing work on a £65 million highways project.   


Suleman, who graduated from Bolton College in 2016, has seen his career soar following his time studying at the College's specialist professional building department. 


Suleman, now a project manager at National Highways, oversaw a scheme that widened both carriageways of the A19 to reduce congestion and noise pollution. You can read more about the scheme here and listen to Suleman discuss it in this video here.  


Suleman described how he climbed the career ladder: "After graduating I secured a job with Jacobs Engineering in Manchester; I worked on large civil infrastructure projects with the bulk of my time spent onsite at Manchester Airport where I delivered small to medium sized projects and was fortunate enough to learn how an airport operates.


In 2018, I joined National Highways on a £1bn+ Highway Project in the North East Region, dualling single lane sections of a 50 mile road. I was then promoted to project manager amidst the pandemic and was tasked with completing delivery of the £65m Highways scheme." 


"Bolton College helped lay the foundations for what is now my ongoing career success. I can't thank the College enough; reaching this milestone was a proud moment for me and it should be for the College too."


Lawrence Atherton, a Professional Building Lecturer at the College, added: "What a fabulous achievement for Suleman and for us too. Suleman put so much hard work in to his studies and fully deserves his success.


"It always gives us real satisfaction when we hear success stories like Suleman's - he's a role model, and on behalf of the whole team, we wish Suleman continued success in his career."
