#NAACAMBursary: Modiehi Chele
Studying: Bachelor of Engineering Technology in Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical engineering was Modiehi’s choice of qualification due to her passion for mathematics and physics. Modiehi recognised that studying this degree would be the best option to allow her to sharpen her skills in design and manufacturing and help her to be excellent in creative thinking and problem solving. As an additional bonus, Modiehi gets to do all those things she is passionate about whilst also changing the world.
Once qualified, Modiehi would love to work in the design and manufacturing sector and aspires to one day become a mechanical design engineer.
Modiehi offers some important advice to young women looking to undertake a technical qualification: “Go for it. It does not mean that as women in engineering we have to “man up” to fit in the industry or change ourselves to be an engineer. What matters is a skill, creative thinking and problem solving abilities.”
