Akhil Mathew

Upon completing an Undergraduate Degree (Civil Engineering) and a Postgraduate Degree (Structural Engineering) in India and Manchester respectively, Akhil joined us as a Graduate Engineer in 2014. 

“PorthouseDean has helped me improve both professionally and personally since I joined back in 2014. I’m constantly working on challenging and interesting projects. I’ve gained exposure in setting up the company’s Quality Assurance procedure which helped us get our ISO Certification. PorthouseDean is the first company I’ve worked at since graduating and I’m very impressed with the quality systems the team have put in place, which ensures everything is well organised and traceable.

As a company which keeps growing, we’re often working to very tight deadlines but this never phases the Senior Engineers who are always on hand to give me guidance and advice. As a Graduate Engineer the exposure to a wide variety of projects and mentorship from my senior engineer is helping me grow as an Engineer and to work towards my Chartership.”
