With National Women in Engineering Day coming up on the 23rd of June, Tessa Colledge, Engineering Software Programmer at Autodesk, has offered the following comment: 

"It’s important to recognise the contribution women bring to engineering on days like National Women in Engineering Day, but we still have a long way to go when it comes to championing female role models.

"In my work as a STEM ambassador with Autodesk, I see the value in exposing young women to careers once deemed only suitable for boys. Having that personal connection with another female like me, gives young women the self-belief that they can discover a career path in STEM.

"If you have an interest in engineering, I’d urge you to cherish the skills that you want to apply – whether this is maths or problem solving skills. Don’t give up on finding the career where you can use these skills – it’s out there somewhere. Take risks, put yourself out there and explore the unknown.”
