“New Zealand women have a unique brand of engineering to offer – we combine care, ingenuity, hard work, resourcefulness and an awareness of ethical issues,” says Prasika Reddy.
At 31, Prasika has already made her mark as a talented engineer and researcher. One of AUT’s first batch of engineering graduates, she has completed her masters and PhD in engineering at AUT. For Prasika, a highlight of the AUT programme was the industrial project: “It gave me more practical skills and real experience than I would get at other universities.”
Prasika’s industrial project saw her build a strong working relationship with Fisher & Paykel Healthcare. As part of her doctoral research, she discovered new methods of treating premature babies with lung disease, work she is furthering with Fisher & Paykel as part of her postdoctoral research.
