East Midlands Business Link in the UK celebrated the success of Nottingham Trent University (NTU) Researcher Professor Eiman Kanjo, a Top 50 Women in Engineering as awarded by The Women’s Engineering Society (WES).

Under the leadership of Professor Kanjo, her team at NTU won a 2021 Vice-Chancellor’s Outstanding Research Award. Professor Kanjo is also the award lead of the new NTU-Turing Data Science Network funded by the Alan Turing Institute.

Professor Kanjo is quoted as saying: “My hope is that engineers and technologists, female and male, play a more prominent role in shaping the world’s future. We design and develop systems that respond to local communities’ needs and we work hand in hand with end users’ organisations to understand what we can do."

Family encouragement to become an engineer 

“I am so grateful to WES for this award, and to my family and my late father who always believed in me and encouraged me to be the engineer I am. Also thank you to all the people who have supported me over the years, including my brilliant Smart Sensing team and colleagues at NTU, without whom this would not have been possible.”

Elizabeth Donnelly, CEO of WES, adds: “Once again WES is delighted to celebrate the achievements of women engineers. It’s a joy that so many innovative women are making a difference to our everyday lives and working to mitigate the impact that engineering has on the environment.”
