What I love about being a civil engineer is doing something that improves people’s quality of life. I also enjoy the opportunity to interact with others. That gives me real job satisfaction.
I started working for Doran Consulting after a placement as a student at Queen’s University Belfast. Now I'm a chartered civil engineer with their water team.
In my current role I’ve been working on the Northern Ireland Water Professional Services Framework. This has meant getting involved in a wide range of tasks including project management, procurement, design co-ordination and appraisals for feasibility studies. I've also had to ensure client satisfaction at every stage.
At home, I'm a mum to two children under the age of three and also an avid sports enthusiast, which makes my weekends pretty busy.
I had always been motivated to gain a professional qualification and was able to get on a company training scheme. My employer gave me a high level of support and I gained lots of relevant experience, which helped me to pass my review in 2009.
Becoming MICE has definitely been a highlight of my career. There are many benefits to doing it: I think it helps you to become a well-rounded engineer. It also sets you on the right path to continue your professional development. That is vital in this job where you have to keep up with the fast pace of industry change.
My qualification has not only increased my career prospects but my confidence as well.
Science and its application have fascinated me since I was a child. I even built a short gravel road and septic tank for our home which was not served by public works when I was still in junior school.
Currently, I’m based in India with WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff and lead a design delivery team of 30-plus engineers and technicians working to support infrastructure projects in the UK.
I have enjoyed a 20 year career as a civil engineer in the transport sector, working around the world on a range of projects from road schemes, motorways, major interchanges to light rail projects.
The most challenging were the designs of Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route in the UK as road design engineer, and Western Freeway Sea Link to provide a link between Worli and Haji Ali along the western sea-coast of Mumbai, India as deputy project manager. The latter was particularly challenging with the involvement of multiple stakeholders including several government agencies, developers, local and international contractors and citizen groups.
CEng MICE definitely gave me a competitive edge as the Institution of Civil Engineers is internationally recognised. Being a Chartered Member is a great honour, and gives me a qualification that is greatly valued and respected wherever I go.
Having achieved CEng MICE, I now support and mentor young engineers as a supervising civil engineer for ICE, a role I thoroughly enjoy. In future, I hope to continue to work on challenging engineering projects and I also aspire to be an ICE Fellow at some point.
