Laura McElhinney: Queen’s University, Belfast

Engineering allows Laura to be creative, and to combine her skills in design and maths. She is interested in new technology and driven by finding out about innovative engineering solutions. She hopes to make a difference through a career in mechanical engineering, which she is studying at Queen’s University, Belfast. Laura is particularly interested in transportation and space exploration, and is fascinated by the evolution of cars and their future. She is also interested in sustainability, and feels this is an area for many opportunities in innovation and design. She says girls don’t consider engineering as a career because they are not exposed to the exciting possibilities at a young age, and they struggle to identify a role in a traditionally male-dominated industry. Laura says: “As a female, I strive to beat the stereotype of the male engineer and aim to advance in the industry as an innovative thinker.”
