Women in Engineering - Anjana Hariharan

This month we celebrate Anjana Hariharan, our Project Engineer from Sydney Remediation Water team who believes a career in engineering is “incredibly rewarding” and “hopes to inspire more women to take up engineering”, simply because as she puts it “diversity is a powerful thing”.

Who or what inspired you to take up a career in engineering?

At university, I was given the opportunity to do some work in water treatment as an engineering cadet and I was amazed at how you could turn all that theory into an actual treatment plant that benefitted the environment and society.

I absolutely loved the fact that there was a tangible result at the end. That was my turning point where I envisioned myself as an engineer specifically in water treatment.

What attracted you to Enviropacific?

I wanted to expand my horizon and pursue better opportunities as I progressed in my career. Enviropacific provided me with the perfect opportunity to work on bigger and better projects, so I had to take up the opportunity to work here!

What do you enjoy most about working here?

I love how the teams collaborate – everyone is always ready to lend a helping hand when you need it! I’m also impressed by the fact that I’m surrounded by people who have a wealth of knowledge and experience, which makes for great learning.

Tell us a bit about your role and what you looking forward to working on?

My role as a Project Engineer revolves around the delivery of projects. I am looking forward to mobilising on site for Sydney Metro Line-Wide and getting started on building the WTP there.

Looking at the bigger picture, I am also hoping to inspire more girls and women to take up a career in engineering because it’s incredibly rewarding, and diversity is a powerful thing!
