I learnt a lot from an engineering perspective while in the Formula Student team. It was a challenging opportunity, and I’m really glad it’s an opportunity available to students.
The stereotype of engineering being the preserve of men in greasy overalls is an old fashioned one. I am two years out of university and one small step away from management level. Being a woman isn’t an issue. The automotive industry is about driving customer-focused results in a timely manner with integrity. As long as you have the skills to deliver, you don’t mind the occasional unsocial hour, and if you are prepared to learn, you’ll go far.”
