Become a junior mechanical engineer: her career
Can you please tell us more about your educational background?
After a two-year intensive preparation courses for the entrance exams to top French engineering schools, I joined the ENSEM (Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Electricité et de Mécanique /
National School of Electricity and Mechanics). The first year enabled me to acquire solid foundations in mechanics, electrical engineering and digital sciences, before specializing in 2nd and 3rd years in mechanics.
Why this choice?
I have always been drawn to mechanical design. Projects during my training have confirmed this affinity and after my end of studies internship in mechanical design in the field of agricultural mechanics, it was obvious to me that I would continue my professional life on this path.
And so, what about your professional career?
I joined the MECAGINE team after graduation. I spent at first 4 months in the premises of the company. During this period, I was trained on new software and I took part in the projects of the internal mechanical design office. Currently, I work for a large professional computer company on a modular data center project.
