Whilst applying for university, Rowan Cunningham realised that many engineering courses were accredited by The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), and so she applied for the MEng Product Design Engineering course at the University of Strathclyde. The defining factor for Rowan was to succeed in a career that made her happy…
“They say the first step in knowing what you want to do is knowing what you don’t want to do, and I believe this is true. As I progressed through education, I narrowed down my list of possibilities.”
Taking influence from her past hobbies of building her own Zooks or watching Robot Wars, Rowan knew that engineering opened her up to a career of exciting progression.
From problem solving, lateral thinking, travel or combining technical with creative, engineering has the opportunity to open many doors. This is the power of STEM, as Rowan enthuses:
“STEM subjects are more than just hard numbers and theory.”
