An article recently published by Punchline Gloucester shows that Renishaw Engineer Lucy Ackland has been named in the top 50 women in engineering. Lucy Ackland joined the company as an apprentice and has received the accolade having worked on several exciting projects at Renishaw and played an active role in its outreach programme.

The Top 50 Women in Engineering initiative is organised by the Daily Telegraph in partnership with the Women's Engineering Society (WES) and employers in the industry.


Lucy joined Renishaw when she was aged 16 and went on to study Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at the University of South Wales, where she achieved a First Class Honours degree.

She led the project team for the RenAM 500M, Renishaw's latest metal additive manufacturing system, which was fully designed in-house. She has also helped partner universities, colleges and businesses to help develop technology and training.


Lucy also attended GET's annual Presentation evening in 2016 as a guest speaker talking about her journey from starting as an apprentice to where she is now and also her involvement in the IET (Institution of Engineering and Technology) .
