Edith Clarke, a pioneering electrical engineer, stands as a beacon of inspiration during Women's History Month. Born in 1883, Clarke overcame societal barriers to become the first professionally employed female electrical engineer in the United States. Her groundbreaking contributions include the development of the Clarke Calculator, a device used to solve power transmission line equations, revolutionizing the field. Clarke's remarkable career spanned both academia and industry, and she paved the way for future generations of women in engineering. Her legacy is a testament to resilience, intelligence, and determination, making her a celebrated figure in the history of women in STEM.

A respected Senior Design Engineer at Siemens, Yasemin Baygar, shares her experience as a woman in engineering and her thoughts on how the industry is changing to encourage girls into engineering. Engineering has an enormous impact on society, global issues, welfare, and the environment, and by impressing young people with how a career in engineering could positively contribute, we’ll see an increase in the number of future engineers. Engineering nowadays is also not like it traditionally was with loud, dirty, heavy machinery. Engineering now is more about research and development, about improving products and systems and using the latest technologies and software to achieve that.
