Professional Q+A: Dr Annette Karstensen

Thu, 15 June, 2023

To mark the centenary of The Welding Institute, we have been releasing a series of special articles, including Q&As with some of our Professional Members.

This week we heard from Dr Annette Karstensen who, as well as being a Member of the Institute since 1996, also spent some years working at TWI’s headquarters near Cambridge.

Annette spoke on her time working in the structural integrity department at TWI, what inspired her to get into engineering, and some of her career highlights so far.

Having travelled around the world with her career, Annette also revealed what makes her career in engineering fun, enjoyable and also rewarding.

As well as noting some of the challenges she has encountered in her career, Annette also told us about her membership of The Welding Institute, the benefits she has gained from it, and concludes by offering some career advice she would give to her younger self.

You can read Dr Annette Karstensen’s engaging and inspiring interview in full on The Welding Institute website, here.
