Today’s engineer is Morgan McIntosh. She has just recently turned 20. She’s from a small town in Lanarkshire called Blackwood and she attended Holy Cross High School in Hamilton. When she was at school she was always interested in Maths and Science as well as Art and Design however was never really sure what career path she would like to follow. It was her Physics teacher who suggested she look into engineering. She looked into many different engineering fields and pursued a Mechanical Engineering HNC course at City of Glasgow College where she was part of the first all girl class in Scotland. This was part of an initiative by the college to get more women into engineering.
After a year at college she decided to apply to university to study Prosthetics and Orthotics which is a specialised department with Biomedical Engineering. She is currently within her first year of this course and enjoying it immensely. In the future she would like to be involved in further developing biomechanical limbs and making these more accessible and affordable to patients.
