Being a girl in engineering degrees has never been easy. Still, who says that we can’t or shouldn’t become engineers?
We are first year students in Mechatronics and Industrial Engineering and, our experience has taught us that, what most people often ask a girl in engineering is: “Why Engineering? It is a men’s degree”. The worst part is that this question has been asked (mostly) by women, and there is something we must understand before taking the challenge of becoming engineers:
“The perfect woman, you see [is] a working-woman; not an idler; not a fine lady; but one who [uses] her hands and her head and her heart for the good of others.” - Thomas Hardy
