Cundall engineer has been given a medal in achievement awards, which has been announced by the Institute of Engineering and Technology. Dr. Ozak Esu uses her free time in order to tutor disadvantaged young people. Dr. Ozak managed to beat a global field of competition in order to jointly win the Mike Sargeant Career Achievement Award for Young Professionals.
The coveted industry accolades have been created to recognise some of the world’s most outstanding engineers and technologists as well as celebrate the skills of exceptional young professionals, students and apprentices.
The Mike Sargeant Career Achievement Award for Young Professionals is the latest honour to be given to Dr. Ozak, as she has also recently been named by the Telegraph as one of their ‘Top 50 Women in Engineering Under 35. This award winning and exceptional electrical engineer graduated with a first class honours degree from Loughborough University and has gained experience working for the industry leading Cundall since 2014. Dr. Ozak is based in the Birmingham office of the UK multi-disciplinary engineering consultancy.
Dr. Ozak said that she was first inspired to study electronic and electrical engineering Loughborough University because of the challenges that are faced in regards to power in her home country of Nigeria. Her experience has also led to her working with disadvantaged Young people. Ozak has been praised by the Managing Partner at Cundall, Tomas Neeson, who has said that since joining the company, she has been an excellent example as a STEM ambassador through her work mentoring a number of students at the Birmingham Office.
Dr. Ozak and the other candidates were nominated for the Institute of Engineering and Technology Awards by their peers and then selected by a judging panel. The winners will collect their awards at a ceremony on the 15th November, which will be hosted by Kate Bellingham, the TV presenter.
