To mark International Women in Engineering Day 2021, we are very pleased to introduce Gemma Cox, a third year mechanical engineering student at the University of Warwick who has been named as the winner of this year’s Ricardo Engineering Prize which recognises the most promising female engineering student.
Each year, with its Engineering Prize, Ricardo sets out to encourage talented female engineering students by recognising their technical achievements, ability to solve complex problems, and their communications skills. Through a work placement at Ricardo, the company also gives them the opportunity to take a positive first step in their professional engineering career and make a contribution to the future of technology.
Here, Gemma tells us more about some of the exciting projects she is working on as part of her degree, as well as her entrepreneurial extra-curricular activities, and how she hopes to inspire other women to consider a career in engineering.
