Brittney, who first became interested in studying engineering at a Women in Engineering camp in her final year of high school, is in her first year of study of a double degree in Engineering and Science.
Brittney was one of Australia’s most promising engineering students presented with their 2017 UNSW Engineering scholarships at a ceremony in May.
Annabel Castledine, Transurban Commercial Manager NSW who attended the event said she had been impressed with Brittney’s interest in transport and civil engineering throughout the scholarship application process.
‘We’re delighted to welcome Brittney to the Transurban team. During the application and interview process, I was so impressed with her understanding of how the road network impacts our community and her creative ideas about making it better,’ she said.
The Women in Engineering Scholarship Transurban scholarship provides financial support during Brittney’s studies and will give the opportunity to do work experience in the Sydney office during her university breaks.
