Liz Green

Chartered Structural Engineer and Sustainability consultant

If you like being creative, solving problems and having a positive impact on our everyday lives then Engineering may be the career for you. Although science, buildings and nature have always been Liz's interests, her route into Engineering was slightly unconventional because she discovered what ‘structure’ is through sculptures in A- Level Art and Design. From the enjoyment of creating sculptures, finding out how things work and her interest in buildings, she applied to Cardiff University to do a BEng in Architectural Engineering which combined building services, architecture and core engineering subjects. This multi-disciplinary degree has led to Liz  working in the best engineering consultancies and recently designing the foundation for the UK’s tallest sculpture: Aspire at Nottingham University.
