Progress is rarely ever a straight, ascending line. More often than not, accidents will happen in the pursuit of higher technology and practices. Failure is something that engineers and scientists must both be ready for and expect, because failure is what inspires so many people to become better. That said, civil engineering is a field that does not have a lot of room for error. However, despite the best efforts of all professionals involved in the field, these errors may happen and cost governments millions of dollars in collateral damages.

Nurturing female ambassadors in STEM from a young age

Article | April 28, 2020

It’s widely recognised that the global STEM sector has struggled to recruit more women into science, tech, engineering and mathematical careers. In line with this, female student enrolment globally, for STEM-related subjects at degree level is particularly low with only 5% of women choosing natural science, mathematics and statistics. The gender gap is still wide open and schools need to be doing all they can today to enhance the educational experience of young females across the country.
