University of Oxford
Welcome to the Queen's College Old Members list
'Read' coastal and offshore engineering for a DPhil; but, due to a fall in the barrel price and a reluctance to return to the states, had to take a job as a civil engineer in Glasgow on slave wages. After a year, went to work on a road bypass around the famous Silverstone racetrack for a further year. Then, deciding to grow up and do what he was trained for, took a job in Wallingford as a coastal engineer. Unfortunately realising, after three years, that he was working in an ivory tower (if not living in one - just off Iffley Road), managed somehow to get chartered and become a MICE. On the back of this he found a job in the real world for Royal Haskoning and moved to Peterborough (truly the land of milk and honey), where he reinvented himself, yet again, as a "Maritime Civil Engineer".
Needing to go back to his country, Thmas Ortega went back to Brazil. Now he's a fitness instructor.
After Oxford, and then an MA in economics and politics at Manchester, spent nearly four years in the civil service. Curiosity killed the cat... and leads civil servants into the private sector... but after two years as a management consultant, and another three running telecommunications companies across the newly-liberalising European markets, reentered the civil service. Hasn't yet found a practical use for a degree in French literature, but has accumulated some expertise in the regulation of liberalising industry sectors (telecoms and most recently energy). Now seconded to the European Commission, working on competition policy in the gas industry.
Martin is now a Colo-rectal Surgeon at Warwick Hospital
