DISHA NAIK

With a clear ambition of becoming a Formula 1 race engineer, Silverstone UTC graduate Disha Naik is also very much an inspiration for young women pondering which career path to take.

Twenty-year-old Disha is currently studying Mechanical Engineering at the University of Warwick after passing her A Levels with an A* in Maths, an A in Further Maths and a B in Physics as well as an A in AS Chemistry and another A in her chosen EPQ (Extended Project Qualification – for her, vibrations in engines).

“I started watching motorsport from an early age. I was always fascinated by what the cars could do and wanted to understand the technology that enabled them to do that,” enthuses Disha.

The UTC, with engineering among its specialist subjects, was a natural fit and Disha is full of praise for how the establishment helped her personal development.

She adds: “The speakers the UTC brings in from its partners are really useful – they give you a great insight into what industry wants. The variety of companies gives you a flavour for all sorts of roles in engineering, and you see something extra you can be doing to be ready for when you graduate."

All results have now been sent to students' email addresses.
