I love being a female engineer in a predominantly male industry and breaking the stereotype of what an engineer is. Engineering is an exciting and challenging career, with so many paths which allow growth. There are many companies looking for more talented women to join the renewables industry. If you are interested in a career in renewables with Pulse or Acteon, reach out to us on LinkedIn.
I work in the renewable energy industry, heading up a team of diverse and talented engineers who develop the mechanical design of equipment and systems which monitor environmental conditions and loadings on structures. Pulse (an Acteon Group company) is a leader in structural monitoring to the oil and gas and renewables industries.
Each day is different. A typical day involves working closely with various engineering functions and other teams in Pulse on concepting, developing and reviewing the mechanical design of products whilst liaising with clients and suppliers to ensure the design suits requirements and is manufacturable. I love my job because of the close, inspiring team of people I work with and the variation of work we do. There are so many challenges we overcome, producing exciting and forward-thinking solutions.
