Our friends at IET have sent us some inspiring profiles of the finalists of the Young Woman Engineer of the Year Award, including the winner Yewande Akinola. We thought we would share these with you.
The awards themselves tool place on 7 December 2012 and were presented by none other than the Beeb’s Gabby Logan.
The event seeks to recognise the very best female engineers under the age of 30 working in the UK today and aims to inspire others to enter the profession. Yewande walked away with the top prize of £2,500 and will act as the new IET young woman engineer ambassador for 2013.
