Saachi Sen, ex-ONL at Cambridge, speaks Engineering to our Further Mathematics classes.
Patrycja (Year 12) writes: “Engineering has always fascinated me, and Saachi explained all the different types of engineering that we could specialise in if we were considering a degree in engineering. She showed us an example of the path we could take with education to go into engineering, by illustrating the choices that she made, the subjects that she studied and just how much freedom of choice she had at university. It was really empowering to see an ONL talk about her experience and success in the field of engineering. It motivated us to pursue a career in engineering as she made us aware of the drastically low statistics of females in STEM industries, for example, only 15% of engineers are female; this therefore encouraged us to follow in her footsteps.”
