- International Experience
Throughout school I always loved maths and science while having a want to make the world a better place. It came to choosing my university course and I felt medicine made the most sense. My grandfather and mum always told me that I would love Engineering, but I could never really understand it or see myself in the field. After consideration I realised Medicine may not be the right career for me, I changed my course to Engineering and Biomedical Science. I instantly loved engineering and knew it was the right choice for me.
I always stood out in my course and was so different to my peers, but it worked in my favour as I was unique and shared an individual perspective. Throughout my course I did a semester abroad in the US and had both career related and non-career related jobs. I found a passion for the environment and decided that was going to be my way of having a career that has a positive impact on the world.
About my role
The role of a Sustainability Engineer is to work with internal and external design teams, clients, and stakeholders to develop and implement sustainability aspirations in projects. Commonly sustainability performances are benchmarked, and the team utilises sustainability rating tools in the planning, design and construction and operation phases. The team has many roles ranging from using different modelling and management techniques to facilitating workshops.
This role collaborates with diverse and inclusive teams across geographies and markets, applies skills to reimagine engineering and design a better future, and works alongside industry leading professionals, mentors, and peers.
