R Melinda Praisy :

Our TA Executive, Melinda Praisy, has this to say about International Women in Engineering Day, sharing her insights and reflections on the importance of recognizing women’s contributions in the field.

On this occasion of International Women in Engineering Day, I reflect upon my own journey as an engineer. During my time in college, I pursued a degree in electronics and communication engineering. It was a challenging yet immensely rewarding experience that laid the foundation for my career. In the field, I have encountered diverse projects and worked alongside talented individuals from different backgrounds. These experiences have nurtured my curiosity, broadened my perspective and enriched my problem-solving skills.

Throughout my career, I have been fortunate to encounter numerous inspiring women engineers who have left a lasting impact on me. Their dedication, technical prowess, and ability to overcome challenges have been a constant source of motivation.

They have demonstrated that gender should never be a barrier to pursuing a career in engineering. The fellow engineers, both male and female, have demonstrated their expertise and dedication, pushing boundaries and making significant contributions to their respective fields. Their accomplishments have motivated me to continuously strive for excellence in my own work.

When it comes to women in engineering, I strongly believe in the importance of inclusivity and diversity. Women have unique perspectives and strengths that can greatly enrich the engineering community.

It is essential to create an environment that encourages and supports their participation, ensuring equal opportunities and recognition for their contributions. It is an opportunity to celebrate the progress made in bridging the gender gap and to encourage more women to explore engineering as a viable and fulfilling career path.

To the women reading this blog, I encourage you to embrace your passion for engineering fearlessly. Believe in your abilities and never hesitate to pursue your dreams. Engineering may present challenges, but with determination and perseverance, you can overcome them and excel in your chosen field.

Seek out mentors and role models who can provide guidance and support along the way. Networking and building strong professional relationships can open doors to new opportunities and collaborations. Lastly, remember to celebrate your achievements and be proud of the impact you make as a woman in engineering.

On this International Women in Engineering Day, let us celebrate the achievements of women engineers and work together to create an inclusive and diverse engineering community. Together, we can inspire the next generation of women engineers and foster a future where opportunities in engineering are accessible to all, regardless of gender.

Women in Engineering Day is an important occasion that celebrates women’s achievements and contributions in engineering. So, here I am reflecting on my own experience in college.

I vividly remember the challenges and triumphs that I faced as a woman pursuing an engineering degree. Despite being in a male-dominated environment, I found tremendous support from my professors, mentors, and peers who recognised and appreciated my capabilities.

Along the way, I had the privilege of working alongside remarkable female engineers who inspired me with their determination, resilience, and innovative thinking. Their accomplishments shattered stereotypes and showcased the immense potential that women possess in the field of engineering.

I firmly believe that diversity in engineering is crucial as it brings together unique perspectives, creativity, and problem-solving approaches. Women have an incredible ability to contribute fresh ideas and solutions, and it is vital that we continue to foster an inclusive environment where they can thrive and make a lasting impact.

Women in Engineering Day serves as a reminder of the immense talent and potential that women bring to the engineering field, and it encourages us to continue promoting gender equality in this dynamic and rewarding profession.

Veda Vinothini Selvaraj, our Trainer, shares her thoughts on International Women in Engineering Day, highlighting the achievements and potential of women engineers and advocating for gender diversity in the industry. Here is a beautiful poem written by Veda Vinothini


Yes, She is judged by appearance

The way she talks

The way she walks

The way she dresses

She may have many obstacles

She broke them to make this

She accepts it because she want to achieve something

She needs independence

She needs equality

She doesn’t wants to be viewed as weak

This can be changed only if you change

She is great, she can make things great

Is she opening up

Is anything blocking her

Why she is silent

Because you are the reason

Silence doesn’t make any change, she knows but she can’t come out

If she works, she wants to be paid equally for her work

Is this really possible

May be it needs more courage or embracing

If you are thinking about ability, she is the equally powerful without any doubt

I know you will make a change and create working women’s lives better !

Amisha Gupta, our Tech Developer, offers her perspective on International Women in Engineering Day, emphasising the need for representation and celebrating the accomplishments of women engineers in shaping the future of technology.

International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) holds great significance in promoting gender diversity and inclusivity in the engineering field.I am thrilled to share my thoughts on this remarkable day. INWED serves as a platform to recognize and celebrate the achievements of women in engineering while also highlighting the ongoing challenges they face.

It is an opportunity to raise awareness about the underrepresentation of women in this profession and inspire young girls to consider engineering as a viable and fulfilling career option.

The engineering field has traditionally been male-dominated, with women facing numerous barriers and biases. However, INWED is instrumental in challenging these stereotypes by showcasing the exceptional work of women engineers across the globe.

By highlighting their accomplishments, the day fosters a sense of empowerment and motivation among women aspiring to pursue engineering careers. It reminds us that gender should never be a barrier to success and that women possess immense talent and skills in this field.

INWED also emphasises the importance of diversity in engineering. Diverse teams bring a wide range of perspectives, ideas, and approaches to problem-solving, ultimately leading to more innovative solutions.

By encouraging women to enter and thrive in engineering, we can tap into the full potential of talented individuals, creating a more inclusive and dynamic profession.

Moreover, INWED serves as a catalyst for change within the engineering industry. It urges organisations and institutions to address gender disparities and work towards creating an environment that supports and promotes gender equality.

By raising awareness of these issues, INWED encourages employers to implement policies and practices that foster inclusivity, such as providing mentorship programs, offering flexible work arrangements, and ensuring equal opportunities for career advancement.

Ultimately, INWED inspires us all to envision a future where women are equally represented in engineering and have the opportunity to contribute their skills and expertise. It encourages us to challenge societal norms, break down barriers, and create a more inclusive and diverse engineering community.

On this day, let us celebrate the achievements of women in engineering, honour their resilience, and collectively work towards a more equitable future.

This special day for women in engineering is an opportunity to become aware of what we have achieved in making engineering an accessible , celebrated and enjoyable career choice for women and also reflect on what we all have done to improve the representation of women in this important sector.

I have always imagined working in this Dope field, and have fast tracked my career from being a cautious self to a confident manager.

For me, women have always had this calibre of doing just anything if they set their mind to it and being in this important field of engineering they just function as Wonder women – fearless, smart, independent, save-the-world type but they can also be themselves, fun, witty, quirky, kind and yes beautiful too.

I am grateful for the many Women Engineers before me who have paved this path for me to look forward to and build a successful career and have my life balanced as well.

And lastly, it is important to promote this amazing field especially to young women showing them that they add value to a team by being more attentive and conscientious and they should definitely contribute towards building a more resilient future.

In conclusion, we want to sincerely thank all our female engineers for sharing their valuable thoughts on International Women in Engineering Day. Your contributions have truly inspired us. We hope to see more women joining the engineering industry, and as an organisation, we promise to prioritise inclusivity going forward.
