National Engineers Week: Four Weir ESCO Engineers Share Their Stories

21 February 2023

“Always be learning.” “Surprising things can happen when you push yourself.” “Engineering allows me to explore my curiosity.” For this year’s National Engineers Week, we asked four of our engineers in global roles to share what drew them to engineering, what they have learned so far, and how they see the future of their profession.

As you will learn from the video below, for some, a career in engineering was their goal from an early start. Others took more circuitous routes to find their passion. Whatever the case, all four found careers at Weir ESCO that feed their craving for problem-solving, continuous learning and making a difference in the world with their work.
