The world of engineering is varied, dynamic, and sometimes beautiful. As part of Engineers Australia’s exciting brand campaign showcasing engineering to inspire a new generation, and in celebration of our amazing discipline, we asked engineers around the world to tell us why they are proud to say #IAmAnEngineer.
The response was overwhelming. We received many stories from engineers working around the world, sharing the work they do, the projects they’ve realised, and the origins of their engineering passion.

Senior Asset Management Engineer Ella Hingston started her civil engineering degree about 12 years ago. In the beginning, Ella assumed she’d be working on bridges, or testing concrete. Since then, though, her career has evolved, and she now works in infrastructure asset management.
