Maria Brooks

Maria joined Ford Motor Company in 2011 and in August, she completes her Electrical Maintenance apprenticeship, while at the same time undertaking a BEng in Manufacturing Systems Engineering degree and an HNC in Electrical Engineering through Bridgend College. Maria has been a keen supporter of the ‘ Girls into STEM’ initiative, encouraging schoolgirls to consider careers based on science, technology, engineering and maths.

“Working within a traditionally male dominated environment has encouraged me to promote the idea of an electrical apprenticeship to other women and young girls, teaching them the value of a career in engineering.”
