One of Frazer-Nash Consultancy’s newest recruits, Sanjana Satheesh, is making strong advances in her career as she contributes to high-impact projects across multiple industries.
Sanjana has a degree in Mechanical Engineering and completed a Cadetship Program with Transport for New South Wales (NSW) and a Graduate Program with the Australian Department of Defence.
In just six months of working at Frazer-Nash, she has helped develop new safety assurance frameworks for autonomous systems, undertaken technical and economic assessments of cutting-edge technology, developed a clear and articulate view of the needs and requirements to replace military equipment, and supported the management of delivering a new light rail line.
“I didn’t think I’d be contributing to society at this level this early in my career,” Sanjana said.
“I’m genuinely part of teams paving the way for new technology to be used safely, helping down-select innovations that could be game-changing for our Australian defence force, and bringing to life systems that improve the way cities move. I have been able to develop many valuable skills and have also been able to contribute and be involved in exciting and challenging projects.
“Of course, the learning curve has been steep, but the company’s culture and formal and informal training have made it feel safe. I’m developing my career, becoming a well-rounded engineer, getting a high level of support and operating in a highly stimulating environment that excites me to work.”
Group Leader Neelan Sundaralingam, Sanjana's manager, said:
"Sanjana focuses on the bigger picture and what the client really needs, offering valuable and meaningful contributions to projects. She has honed her skills, knowledge and experience to solve real problems and alleviate client pain points.
"She’s an asset to the team. We’re happy to have a brilliant, energetic engineer that stretches herself to deliver the best for her clients."
