VIDEO. Professor Margaret Hyland, from the Engineering Department at the University of Auckland, “absolutely” recommends a career in engineering. Because engineers are well-trained thinkers that can help society, there is no reason why women should be put off from entering this field of work. Margaret firmly believes that engineering is definitely a profession for women.
