Why I chose to be an aviation engineer – Emilie Apostu
Working as Regulations and Standards Specialist, in this short video clip Emilie Apostu explains why she chose to work within aviation engineering and gives advice for young people considering engineering as a career or who are just beginning their work journey.
IFA has recognised that a shortage of engineering professionals can become an airworthiness issue, if it is not addressed. Effort is needed to attract new talent into aviation engineering and that needs to start early. Effort is needed to retain existing skilled professionals too. Effort is needed to promote the rewarding nature of the work.
IFA will raise awareness of the opportunities that exist at an exciting time in the advance of aviation. We needs to inspire young people to pursue engineering careers.
