South London would-be Electrical & Electronic and civil engineers are in for a treat, as Carshalton College has just appointed a vivacious Team Leader for their Access to Higher Education, Engineering.Colombian-born Mariutxy Cadavid who joins Carshalton College, is looking forward to helping more budding engineers win a University place.

"If students have the ability and the desire, it is possible to go to University to study engineering. It's a great career choice which opens lots of doors in a competitive job market."

Mariutxy, is keen to attract more girls onto her courses and says that STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) is an excellent way to promote these subjects to girls in schools and colleges.

"Engineering, is just like IT, business or media – it's everywhere we look. I like to give real life examples of engineering in everyday life and especially like doing out of the classroom teaching as it consolidates learning."

With a degree in Aerospace engineering from Queen Mary's University and an MSc Aerospace from Kingston University, Mariutxy has an excellent track record - based on personal knowledge and experience - of helping her students get into some of London's top Universities to study engineering.
