No, I do not think engineering is a "boy's industry". I teach at the Departament for Foreign Languages and Communication within the (oldest) Technical University of Civil Engineering in Bucharest, Romania and I know for a fact from my daily experience at work, as well as our cooperation with the Politehnica University of Bucharest that boys and girls are on an equal footing in this field. What qualifies anyone willing to enter it is intelligence, discipline, readiness to work hard, put in extra effort, get dirty every now an then, and generally just be a hands-on, down-to-earth sort of person.
