Five young female engineers working on projects ranging from the next generation of sports venues and stadiums to sound systems in cars have all been shortlisted for the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) Young Woman Engineer of the Year Awards 2015.


These prestigious engineering industry awards aim to banish outdated engineering stereotypes of hard hats and greasy pipes – and help change the perception that engineering is only a career for men.


Ashleigh Sumner is an Engineering Apprentice at Siemens currently working in the research and development department.


Helen Cavill is a Process Improvement Manager at M&H Plastics, currently working on automating dimensional measurement of plastic components.


Orla Murphy is an Audio EQ Engineer at Jaguar Land Rover - she produces exciting sound systems and features in Jaguar Land Rover vehicles.


Emma Goulding is a Technical Apprentice (Controls) at Siemens, specialising in the Power Generation Services sector.


Rossella Nicolin is a Principal Structural Engineer at AECOM, working on large sports venues and stadium projects worldwide.


The winners will be revealed at a glittering ceremony on 3 December 2015 at the newly refurbished IET London: Savoy Place.
