For International Women’s Engineering Day hear from Rose Gheitasi, one of our Machine Operators, on her journey to becoming an engineer.

Q. What is your background?

I worked in a candy factory overseas as a product engineer and also as a website designer and programmer for a short time as I have degree in computer and programming.

Q. What inspired you to go into engineering?

Since I was a kid, I was very interested in math and science. I was always curious about how things worked! I remember when I was 7 years old and my dad bought me a doll that could sing, after playing with it for a while, one day me and my brother took its parts off and tried to find out how does it worked and tried to build something similar and so maybe that was the start.

Q. What do you love most about engineering?

I think an engineer is always looking for new ideas and projects and try to bring them into reality, an engineer tries to make human’s life easier in different ways. For me with engineering I always feel actively inspired and up to date on the latest innovations and that’s why it’s never boring.

Q. How did you end up at NanoLayr?

I knew Nanolayr as a place where you can practice both science and engineering and most importantly, it’s an innovative developing technology with new challenges and which was what I always was looking for.

Q. How does it feel to be a woman in engineering?

I feel strong and proud with what I am doing, I love following my dreams and being a very successful engineer.

Q. What would be your International Women in Engineering message to girls who are thinking about entering the field today?

I would encourage them to pursue their passions and if engineering is what they like and have the patience for, then they should follow their dreams! Engineering is not just a man’s field.
