Energy engineering and construction firm Technip will tomorrow (23 Jun)  mark National Women in Engineering Day with an open evening at its UK headquarters in Westhill, Aberdeen.

Following the success of a similar event last year, Technip’s UK operating centre is inviting young women interested in a career in engineering to come along to find out more about the industry and Technip’s work in the subsea sector.

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about various engineering disciplines and will have a chance to speak with female engineers currently working within the oil and gas industry, learning first-hand about their career paths, roles and what attracted them to a career in engineering.

Bill Morrice, Managing Director, Technip UK, commented: “Achieving gender diversity in the workplace is essential to our business and the future of the workforce. Engineering hasn’t always been an obvious choice for women but the opportunities are incredible.”
