Engineer Roma Agrawal joins Aecom

High-profile engineer Roma Agrawal has been appointed by Aecom as associate director. She joins the company’s growing structural engineering team in London and will be responsible for both business development and project delivery work.

Agrawal joins Aecom from Interserve, where she was design manager. She was previously associate director at WSP and has worked on projects including The Shard at London Bridge, One Nine Elms and Crystal Palace Station.

She has received multiple awards during her career to date, both for her technical ability and for her contribution to raising awareness of engineering as a career. Last year she was included in the Top 50 Women Engineers in the UK list, compiled by The Telegraph and Women’s Engineering Society, and in 2014 she was recognised by the Association for Consultancy and Engineering with the Diamond Award for Engineering Excellence.

She has appeared in engineering documentaries on the BBC and ITV and has featured in various UK newspapers and magazines to help raise the profile of the profession.

Commenting on her new role, she said: “I look forward to working on Aecom’s wonderfully diverse range of projects while also continuing to promote engineering as a career to young people, particularly among under-represented groups.”

Mike Burton, director, Aecom, said: “We are delighted that Roma is now part of the Aecom team – bringing her engineering expertise to our projects and her passion for the profession to our people.”

Agrawal is a chartered engineer with both the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) and the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and is a fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). She has a masters degree in general structural engineering at Imperial College London and a degree in physics from Oxford University.
