2On Women in Engineering Day, Eliane Algaard, director of route asset management for Anglia, explains why she chose a career in engineering.Eliane is a chartered civil engineer with an MSc and PhD in civil engineering from Glasgow University. She has worked for Network Rail since 2008, when she started her career as a strategic planner. She now looks after a team of over 100 people whose job it is to manage the maintenance, enhancement and renewal of all the bridges, tunnels, stations and track on the 1,700 miles of track that make up the Anglia route.

 

 

Eliane said “I chose engineering because it’s the chance to solve puzzles, something I’ve always wanted to do ever since I was a little girl. Working for Network Rail is fantastic, it offers great opportunities to add value to society, especially as the railway is growing and we’re looking at upgrading all of our assets and enhancing our network in order to have faster trains, better trains, carrying more people.”

 

Rail is vital to the UK’s economic growth and Network Rail is transforming and modernising the railway as part of its Railway Upgrade Plan, to make a bigger and better railway for passengers. There is a huge amount of work involved which provides a wealth of opportunities for women who want to embark on a career in engineering.
