Amy Boothby is a studying Agricultural Engineering at Harper Adams University and is keen that other young women follow her path

My interest in Engineering was initially sparked by a school trip to Jaguar Land Rover in Solihull, at this time I was 15 years of age and had never even considered Engineering as a career path. Jaguar Land Rover was quick to change my perceptions of engineering, given how clean their factories were and how highly their engineers spoke of a career in engineering.  Read more about Amy's story here.
