Celebrating International Women in Engineering Day
In honor of International Women in Engineering Day, we would like to tell you more about one of EBA’s newest licensed professional engineers, Narjis Ali!
Originally from Karachi, Pakistan, Narjis is currently a project engineer in EBA’s structural engineering department where she enjoys her work designing buildings and structures, such as upgrades to the Capital Region Water Advanced Wastewater Treatment Facility building in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
While her four sisters went into the medical field, Narjis followed her passion for mathematics and problem solving to forge her own path in engineering. She has worked in the field now for almost 7 years, and this month she passed the exam to become a licensed professional engineer (PE). Narjis counts earning her PE license as one of her proudest career accomplishments so far.
Her engineering efforts help our clients build and improve the essential infrastructure our communities need to survive and thrive. “As an engineer, we apply sound engineering principles to design structures that are functional, safe, and aesthetically pleasing,” says Narjis.
Narjis’s advice to girls interested in an engineering career is to “improve your problem solving and communication skills and be confident to face the world as woman in engineering.”
We celebrate the outstanding achievements of all women engineers and support the engineering heroes of the future for INWED21!
