#SheCanEngineer Celebrates Women in Engineering | #INWED18 #RaisingTheBar @WES1919

Instagram account SheCanEngineer profiles women in engineering – from historical profiles to contemporary civil and mechanical engineers to students studying to be future engineers. Their profiles are focused on British-based members of ICE, IChemE, IMechE, and other organizations. Here are a few of the profiles already posted:

Registration with tea and cake will be held this evening in the aptly named Haslett room

Roshni Wijesekera, Fire Engineer at AECOM⠀ “I am so glad I chose to be an engineer. It is an exciting and rewarding career that really makes a ⠀ difference to society. I would encourage every young person out there to talk to engineers and take on work experience so that you can find out everything you can about engineering. It will surprise you to discover how broad and diverse engineering roles, disciplines and industries are and if you are someone who enjoys solving problems, you will definitely find that an engineering career is for you! “⠀ #shecanengineer #womenengineers #womeninstem #womenofengineering #stemcareer ⠀ #engineering #inwed18 #inwed #ICE #IMechE #IChemE #IStructE #CIBSE #CIWEM SPONSORED BY ⠀ @AECOM #AECOM

Sophie Morris, Assistant Construction Manager, Mace ⠀ “I studied Civil Engineering at University College London to apply my scientific skills in a practical way and have since discovered the wealth of responsibilities and constraints an engineer needs to take into account. As a former UCL student, I am pleased to be based on site back on campus helping to deliver their New Student Centre, a high quality sustainable building that has been designed with student learning in mind. I enjoy watching the project evolve under my eyes – every day on site is different and it’s a great feeling to be a part of it! ⠀ My experience of working in very male dominated environments so far has been supportive and welcoming. I regularly take part in Women in engineering promotion events to help build the next generation of female engineers. If you have an interest, my advice is to not hesitate to pursue a degree or a career in engineering – with the number of fun and rewarding projects you can get involved in throughout your career, it’s a no-brainer!”⠀ #shecanengineer #womenengineers #womeninstem #womenofengineering #stemcareer #engineering #inwed18 #inwed #womeninengineering #ICE ⠀ #IMechE #IChemE #IStructE #CIBSE #CIWEM SPONSORED BY #macegroup @macegroup

Silvia Fiorini, Environmental Engineer, Ferrovial Agroman. “What do you want to be when you are an adult? A fireman, a doctor, a vet…I never thoughts to be an engineer. I wanted to be an actress. Engineering was challenging for me as I wasn’t sure I could do it but I was a really curious and determined girl so…here I am! ⠀ I had the privilege to start my career on one of the biggest infrastructure project: Crossrail and now I work in another amazing project: Thames Tideway Tunnel. ⠀ Engineering is excitement, ideas, passion, movement and I am honoured to be part of the ⠀ engineering world.” #shecanengineer #womenengineers #womeninstem #womenofengineering #stemcareer #womeninengineering #engineering #inwed2018 #inwed #ICE #IMechE #IChemE #IStructE #CIBSE #CIWEM SPONSORED BY ⠀ #ferrovialAgroman

Natalie, Civil Engineer, Aecom: ⠀ “I am really fortunate to have had the chance to take a sabbatical very early on in my career. ⠀ I spent six months total in the capitals of Zambia and Togo working on projects with the Department of International Development. People are surprised to hear I wasn’t out there teaching children or building something. Despite undertaking non-engineering related work, I developed my confidence and leadership skills significantly which I have brought back to my team at work! I would definitely encourage all engineers to explore the breadth of experiences available through volunteering, and meet a diverse group of people that you can learn from”. #shecanengineer #womenengineers #womeninstem #womeninengineering #womenofengineering #stemcareer #engineering #inwed2018 #inwed18 #inwed #ICE #IMechE #IChemE #IStructE #CIBSE #CIWEM SPONSORED BY #aecom @aecom Twitter: @nataliegcheung | Instagram: @nataliegarbo

Chyneze, Work Experience Student Engineer, ⠀ “I have really enjoyed my experience here at Arup, learning about how facilities and objects I use every day are built and the involvement of each discipline. I have had the chance to work on different projects, giving me an understanding of how to use different software, allowing me to visualise my project in more depth, alongside a different individual each day which has given me an insight to what they do day to day as an engineer. Overall I have had a great time and would encourage other girls to look into engineering.”⠀ #shecanengineer #womenengineers #womeninstem #womenofengineering #womeninengineering #stemcareer #engineering #inwed2018 #inwed18 #inwed #ICE #IMechE #IChemE #IStructE #CIBSE #CIWEM
