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.

Technical Project Manager
Dr Tosin Adedipe is the Technical Project Manager for the £7.9m HyPER Phase 2 pilot plant project for hydrogen production and CO2 capture technology scale-up, funded by the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) in the Energy and Power theme at Cranfield University. Her project management experience has ranged from energy research and net-zero projects, climate change studies, energy (oil and gas) operations and consulting.
With a focus on renewable energy assets and decarbonisation project management, her most recent research projects are in hydrogen and CO2 capture technology development, offshore wind energy asset decommissioning costs & risk management and an Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC)-funded Supergen-Wind Hub R4 project.
Dr Adedipe has published four peer-reviewed research articles in her early research career. At Cranfield University, she teaches on the Risk and Reliability Engineering module and has held previous roles as a research assistant, assistant group project supervisor, assistant MSc project supervisor for renewable energy projects and teaching assistant for Failure Modes and Effect Analysis (FMEA) workshops in the Reliability Engineering and Asset Risk Management MSc course.
She is the Institution Liaison for the IET London Young Professionals Network and the Vice President of Education at Cranfield Speakers Toastmasters (a leadership and communication development organisation).
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.
