When it came to selecting my university course I was torn between Finance or Civil Engineering. An engineering graduate in the modern commercial banking world actually is an attractive prospective employee as such a degree illustrates a strong analytical mind and ability to solve complex problems. This helped me in choosing engineering over finance as a career path.”
“Following graduating I went to work in Dublin for Roughan & O' Donovan where I gained invaluable experience in the design of bridges, old and new. In 2011 I moved to Copenhagen and began working for Rambøll where I am the Project Manager for the Forth Replacement Crossing in Edinburgh, a €1bn project.”
“Being a woman in a primarily male dominated profession, for me, has simply opened doors rather than closed them. I can honestly say that while a full time career in Civil Engineering may not be the decision of all graduates upon completion I have found it to be an incredibly diverse and interesting profession.”
In 2015 Anne was the winner of the European Federation of Engineering Consultancy Associations' prestigious Young Professionals award for her work on the Queensferry Crossing project in Scotland.
