The DHS Technical Department would like to thank apprentice Engineer, Karis McColl for her talk on Women in Engineering.
Karis attended Dunblane High herself, and has gone on to pursue a career in Engineering. Much to her delight, she has been welcomed warmly into the field, despite it being widely considered a “male dominated” occupation.
She now studies Electronics at the Open University, alongside completing her apprenticeship as a “overhead linesman” with SSE, funding herself through her studies. She was able to describe the good, bad and downright scary aspects of her job, giving our S3 girls a valuable and detailed insight to her area of expertise.
We even enjoyed some Origami!
