Shruti | Prosthetics engineer
How I got into this job I did A levels at military sixth form college in preparation to become an Aerospace Engineer in the Royal Air Force, but unfortunately developed knee problems and had to leave the military.
I then chose to specialise in Biomedical Engineering, developed an interest for prosthetics and applied for my PhD: Working with the military to make better fitting limbs for ex-soldiers who are amputees.
