March is National Engineering Month in Canada – an opportunity to showcase the exciting opportunities that a career in engineering has to offer. We are proud to employ some of the best and brightest in the industry in Calgary, Halifax, and Ottawa and will be highlighting them throughout the month.
Meet Carla, a Systems Engineering Lead, for our Vetronics Smart Displays team in Ottawa.
1. Tell us what led to your current role in engineering?
I joined General Dynamics Mission Systems–Canada upon completing my undergrad. What initially led me to the organization was the sense of purpose I felt in developing technology for the men and women who serve our country.
During my tenure, I have had the opportunity to move from software to systems engineering. Since joining the Vetronics Smart Displays Product Line Team as the Systems Engineering Lead, I have had the opportunity to grow rapidly into a leadership role that I have not experienced before in my career.
Never stop challenging yourself and follow your instincts.
