About this event

Dr. Ingrid Hunt, School of Engineering at the University of Limerick, would like to invite you to join our series of #ListenChatAsk virtual conversations with individuals who have experience in today’s fast changing global industry environment.

During this session, Dr Hunt will be joined by Chartered Structural Engineer and Engineer of the Year in 2021 - Aisling Hahessy - to discuss "Engineering: a collaborative and compassionate career"

Aisling Hahessy is a Senior Structural Engineer in the Buildings team at Arup, based in the Cork office. She has solid technical experience and a strong track record on international projects, having worked on a number of complex​building and infrastructure projects​ in Ireland, Canada, the UK, Mexico, Saudi Arabia and Peru, as well as development projects in Rwanda, Uganda and Bangladesh.

Aisling completed a three-year assignment in Arup’s Toronto office from 2017 to 2020, where she worked on large transportation projects including stations, deep underground shafts and maintenance facilities. An advocate for promoting engineering to underrepresented groups, Aisling was a panellist at the first I Wish STEM showcase in 2015 and organised an ongoing Mentoring Programme for secondary school students with Business in the Community Ireland.
