About Engineerette

How did this website come to be?

We all know the ‘typical’ engineer, the awkward, number-crunching geek with glasses. While some of us fit that description, it isn’t the entire engineering community.

As a young girl, I was drawn to the world of math and science. However, these stereotypes in STEM made the career path unappealing and hard to follow.

Despite these reasons, I still went for a career in electrical engineering. Since then, I’ve learned that a flourishing career can be achieved without sacrificing time for caring relationships, passionate hobbies, and a healthy lifestyle. Knowing that all this was achievable would have made my career decision easier. Back then, I blindly chose to study engineering and hoped for the best. Now, I hope my experiences can offer a glimpse of what engineering has to offer for prospective students.

At the same time, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. The busy schedules, academic stress, and competitive atmosphere have not gone unnoticed. While these are common throughout many industries, I’ve seen them snowball into bigger problems. I hope to shed light on these issues and start the discussion.

From workplace fashion to mental well-being, let’s share this adventure together!
