LEH Alumna Claudia Caravello Needs Your Vote!

Civil engineer Claudia Caravello (LEH 2007-2014) has been shortlisted for a prestigious prize in which she has just 200 seconds to inspire us about a topic close to her heart… the London sewer system!

Claudia, who left LEH six years ago, now works as Assistant Project Manager at Turner and Townsend, and is in the running for the competition organised by the Institution of Civil Engineers. It aims to encourage the next generation into the profession by demonstrating how civil engineers can transform people’s lives directly.

Please help her, by following this link to the video and voting page - and voting for her before Friday 10th July.

The 24-year-old says: “In my video I have spoken about solving London's "Monster Soup" problem, telling the story of the creation of the London sewer system which inspired me to pursue becoming an engineer and hopefully will inspire others too.”

Claudia talk takes you back to the 1850s when Joseph Bazalgette became the Victorian mastermind and public health visionary behind the vast sewage system that Londoners still rely on today. “It is now known as one of the seven wonders of the industrial world and features 2,000km of tunnels, carrying up to two billion litres of waste a day.”

The winner of the prize will be named ICE London and South East England Regional Ambassador 2021. Claudia concludes: “Engineers can make a huge impact on the world, whether that’s revolutionising processes or improving lives.”

She has always had a passion for science and construction and founded the Young Engineers Club at LEH in 2013, to inform students about the variety of opportunities offered by the industry and to teach them simple engineering concepts.  She was also a winner of the LEH Sixth Form Prize in 2014. Claudia graduated from Imperial College in 2018 where she studied Civil and Structural Engineering.

Good luck Claudia.  We are all rooting for you. Please show her your support too. Together we can get Claudia named ICE London and South East England Regional Ambassador 2021. Go LEH!
