Answer by Dr. Folake O Akintayo

Women in engineering have been subjected to all forms of rigorous activities during their study and training period. The drive to succeed in all challenges that might come their way is already ingrained in them. After all, engineering is all about coping with societal challenges in its various forms such as providing good shelter and portable water for the people, meeting their telecommunication and transportation needs, etc. What you see the women in engineering do outside is an outcome of their tough training and the drive to succeed.
