I'm Rebecca King, a civil engineer from Cheshire, United Kingdom. I currently live and work in Dubai, UAE. I have 11 years of experience working in the United Kingdom and a year of experience working in the UAE in both Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
I am a Senior Project Manager for Turner & Townsend. I absolutely love my career and am passionate about raising the profile of civil engineering and the construction industry amongst women and the younger generation.
The world relies on civil engineers to provide access to things we take for granted, such as buildings, transport and access to clean water and sanitation. I care deeply about developing skills in myself, and others, which will shape the world, for a sustainable future.
Civil engineering; the art of directing the great sources of power in nature for the use and convenience of man
