Why did you decide to become an engineer? What inspired you to become one?
At school, I always had a talent and appreciation for maths, physics and geography. These subjects provided a natural pathway to the study of Civil Engineering at University – a discipline where the built and natural worlds are combined. Having grown up in the UK, I had easy access to the history and advancements of engineering going as far back as the Romans. Knowing that engineers had been shaping the built environment, civilization, and society 2000 years ago was part of my inspiration for becoming an Engineer.
What is it about the industry that motivates you?
Having the opportunity to face the challenges that are associated with increased population density and global warming on the built environment, while limiting the impact on the natural environment.
In your perspective, how do you think the industry is changing?
Advancements in technology, collaboration and innovation allow greater efficiency and productivity. The trend of moving away from the traditional ‘hard’ built environments towards a more sustainable and resilient built environment will continue, particularly with the combined impact of population growth and global warming.
