A Farrans site engineer based on the New Wear Crossing project in Sunderland has clinched a spot on the Top 50 Women in Engineering Under 35 list.
Amy Wright was delighted to receive news of her success after the elite list was announced today, in conjunction with International Women in Engineering Day.
The list, which was compiled by the Telegraph in collaboration with the Women’s Engineering Society (WES), recognises the UK’s top female talents within engineering.
Kirsten Bodley, Chief Executive of the Women’s Engineering Society (WES), commented on the high standard of entries for 2017, with more than 500 nominations.
“We had a very high response to the campaign this year and were hugely impressed with the entries,” she said.
“This list of inspirational younger women shows the breadth and depth of talent and innovation across all engineering sectors.
“It is a great way of encouraging the next generation to enter the engineering and allied sectors and for women to succeed there.”
In order to celebrate her fantastic achievement and meet with the other inspirational female engineers, Amy attended a number of events in London this afternoon and received her certificate at a formal celebration dinner this evening.
