Ioni Kalospyrou

Position: Vice President (External)

Hi, I am Ioni and as the external vice president of the society I am in charge of overseeing all committee activity and assisting the president. I am personally responsible for overseeing all outreach activities, the society’s public image and networking activities as well as representing the society in events.

Why Engineering?
Maths and science have always been what fascinated me the most and then what I loved doing the most was solving problems. Isn’t this pretty much the definition of engineering? I realised this at the age of 13. Later on, I found out that chemical engineering is what suits me most because it combines maths, physics and chemistry. In university I found out how broad this field of engineering is and it is truly remarkable in how many industries a chemical engineer can work.

Why Women in Engineering society?
In my school as a student interested in science and maths I have always found myself surrounded by male peers. Then I came to uni to pursue a career in a male dominated field. Girl power was missing from my life… This is why I immediately joined the WiE society, a group of united women engineers who understand and support each other.
