Most famously known for her successful dancing career, celebrity Oti Mabuse is a crowd favourite on Strictly Come Dancing where each week, as well as appearing as a judge on the BBC's The Greatest Dancer.
However, while we may all know Oti Mabuse for her love of dance, her first area of interest was Civil Engineering. Intending to help design irrigation systems for Hartbeespoort dam and RDP in Garankuwa, Mabuse went on to study Civil Engineering at university, at the Tshwane University of Technology, in her home country of South Africa.
Mabuse views her time spent studying civil engineering as largely contributing to the ambitious woman she is today; however, her passion for dancing outgrew her civil engineering dreams.
She commented: “I went and studied civil engineering for four years. However, I soon realised the hours were so long I couldn’t dance anymore, and I had to choose.”
Another famous face in the entertainment industry who studied Civil Engineering is actor and celebrity Chris Vance. Although now he is best known for his roles in Transporter: The Series, All Saints and Prison Break the Londoner began his career at Newcastle University and graduated with an honour’s degree in Civil Engineering.
