Meet the Engineers- Volume 2: Series 5: Project Managers Talk!!

The purpose of this event is to help young students, school leavers and degree students understand more about engineering like day-to-day jobs and personal experiences. To encourage young students and school leavers to pursue a career in STEM by addressing their concerns is another highlight of this event. Attendees can contact the Events team if they are interested in becoming a speaker. 

The event will be an hour-long with two 30-minute speakers, Dr Tosin Adedipe the Technical Project Manager for the £7.9m HyPER Phase 2 pilot plant project for hydrogen production and CO2 capture technology scale-up. Braiden Zhawi, a Transportation Project Manager ensures that the transportation infrastructure upon which TfL, TfGM and Network Rail rely are kept compliant, operational and functioning at optimal levels.

The panel session will be chaired by Dr Tobi Elusakin who will facilitate the discussion about their careers and invite the audience to contribute to the conversation.

Braiden Zhawi

Braiden Zhawi

Project Manager

Braiden has always held a keen interest in transportation. After completing his Civil Engineering studies, Braiden chose to pursue a career in transportation in order to understand how transportation infrastructure is built and then maintained over its life. Whilst working on the HS2 project, Braiden managed to build up his stakeholder management skills whilst working for a prime contractor (EKFB).

This enabled Braiden to coordinate complex programmes and expansive budgets in a capital expenditure context. Braiden now works as a Transportation Project Manager ensuring that the transportation infrastructure upon which TfL, TfGM and Network Rail rely are kept compliant, operational and functioning at optimal levels.
