Yasmin Ali, Operations Engineer, E.ON, London
Yasmin began her engineering career seven years ago when she decided to study Chemical Engineering at Nottingham University.
After graduating, she completed the two year E.ON Engineering and Leadership graduate scheme where she worked in coal and gas fired power stations in the UK as well as on business expansion in Istanbul, Turkey.
In March 2012, Yasmin joined E.ON Exploration and Production as an Operations engineer, taking part in and leading a variety of projects for oil and gas assets in the UK North Sea.
The projects range from working out power requirements and purchasing a power unit for an offshore gas platform, to figuring out the optimum way to flow a new gas well.
Her job involves travelling between London, Aberdeen, Great Yarmouth, Holland and Norway as well as going offshore to platforms and service ships.
Alongside her engineering work, Yasmin dedicates much of her time to promoting engineering careers through attending and presenting at schools and career fairs and arranging work experience placements for students with her company.
She is a volunteer for OPITO, Whynotchemeng and STEMNET and an Industrial Representative for the Institute of Chemical Engineers.
Outside of work Yasmin enjoys life to the full by being active through running, cycling and trying out new sports; the most recent of which is kite surfing!
She is also keen on stand-up comedy, spending time with friends and family and travelling to new countries and immersing herself in other cultures.
