Supporting Women in Engineering

We believe a diverse and inclusive team delivers better innovation and superior solutions.

At Smiths Medical we have many talented female engineers and we want to inspire future generations of women to pursue engineering and technology as a career.

Read why some of our talented women chose engineering.


I studied Medical Engineering to develop my technical, analytical and research skills

Ayesha

R&D Intern - Ashford, UK
“I was always really good at maths and science and have always enjoyed problem-solving, all of which ties in perfectly with engineering. I studied Medical Engineering with the aim to develop my technical, analytical and research skills and one day be a part of the work that help improve human health and that is what has brought me to Smiths Medical.”


My engineering background set me up to drive the innovation I hoped to be a part of!

Hudson

Global Product Manager, Syringe Infusion - Minneapolis, Minnesota
“As a student in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, I always hoped I could use the technical skills I was learning to drive innovation in healthcare. In my role as a Global Product Manager, I lean on those technical skills and the problem-solving mindset to build a product strategy that addresses the needs of clinicians and patients around the world. Although I may not do math every day, my engineering background set me up to continue solving strategic problems and drive the innovation I hoped to be a part of!”


I have been humbled by some pieces of engineering that I have seen at Smiths Medical

Jeanne

R&D Manager - Ashford, UK
“From day one, I have been impressed by the depth of knowledge from people around me working in the Research and Development (R&D) and Advanced Manufacturing Engineering (AME) departments and have been very fortunate to work with amazing engineers. One should always approach work joyfully and with passion, and I have been humbled by some pieces of engineering that I have seen at Smiths.”


I am constantly reviewing our ideas and concepts with healthcare professionals and patients

Valerie

Human Factors Engineer - Minneapolis, Minnesota
“I may be biased, but I think my role is one of the most important roles in supporting Smiths Medical’s mission. In human factors engineering, I communicate with healthcare professionals and patients on a regular basis. I am constantly reviewing our ideas and concepts with them and getting their thoughts and opinions on how we can improve our concepts. My role helps to ensure the customer is actually getting what they want as well as receiving a safe and effective device.”
