Our world is evolving very quickly. With engineering and technology right at the heart of the huge transformation we are experiencing, a career in STEM becomes more than a career but a way of life - a consistent source of boundless creativity.

Yewande Akinola is excited to share her discovery of the roles innovative engineering and technology play in bringing progress to our world – from the development of our built environment to more specific and intentional problem-solving.
