Mechanical Engineer

Naomi works as a car safety engineer.

She became interested in engineering during her GCSEs. "I did some work experience at British Aerospace. That's when I realised what it was all about; it's very hard to understand what an engineer does without seeing it for yourself. It's very hands on; you're always producing something or making something."

After completing a degree in engineering, Naomi now investigates how people are injured in accidents and terrorist attacks. "The best bit of my job is when I get to crash cars and blow up fake people - it's great fun. But it is also good to know that you're preventing people from being injured or killed in the real world."
