Founder named Woman Engineer of the Year 2009

Bijal Thakore was announced the winner of the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) prize for her service in the engineering sector at a recent prestigious award ceremony.

Bijal, founder of Big On Good Solutions, was overjoyed when she was awarded the prize at the Young Woman Engineer of the Year 2008 event, organised by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).

She said: “Young people – both men and women alike – are contributing to advancing engineering, science and technology in our society in more ways than ever before and are moving engineering away from the professional stereotypes.

“Being recognised for this is a great honour. I love waking up every day to solve challenges that combine solutions in engineering, technology as well as social behaviour and hence, being able to break the traditional ways in which different sectors operate.”

After a number of years of consulting, Bijal’s most recent venture is Big On Good Solutions, focused on delivering bespoke engineering and design services harnessing the unique abilities of modular, swarm driven robotics, algorithms and looking at cutting edge cluster behaviours. Big On Good helps a number of clients in a variety of fields to drive efficient operations and timely results without the associated back-office burden.
