When asked why she decided to become an engineer, Naz states, “I chose to become an engineer because it involves a background in math and science, but also gives creative freedom to solve real world problems with tangible results. I’m very happy that working at Newcomb & Boyd has given me the opportunity to apply engineering to impactful and sustainable design!”
