I’m Ally. I’m currently working a control systems engineer in the manufacturing industry. In September, I go back to university for the final year of my degree.
I write because engineering is a severely misunderstood profession, even for engineering students. My placement has taught me a lot about industry, and I want to share that knowledge with the world.
Engineering outreach is a big interest of mine. I take lots of inspiration from the engineers who are working tirelessly to bring new people into the profession. However, we have our work cut out. I believe that in order to see faster change, we need to tackle the root cause, which is the lack of awareness of the engineering profession.
