Each one of us has a passion: an innate desire to learn more about the world and contribute to our future through insightful thinking, diligent hard work and perseverance. When a person can focus their abilities toward their passion, the results can be astounding and create an exciting future for all of us. Opportunities appear like doorways and progress is remarkable.
Cambium Networks team members are able to follow their passions as they advance in their careers and make significant contributions to the industry, as well as the communities they live in. On International Women in Engineering Day, I’d like to highlight Lucia Valbonesi, Senior Engineer and Fellow at Cambium Networks.
Lucia has always been interested in math and science. She was one of only a handful of female students when she attended the Polytechnic University of Milan in Italy. She went on to earn a PhD in electrical engineering and teach graduate level courses. She also holds two patents in fixed wireless broadband technology. Lucia found her passion from a young age and overcame the notion that engineering is not for women. Since she graduated, she has seen larger numbers of women enrolling in engineering schools and joining the workforce. Lucia shares more of her story in this interview.
As do many people who enter this field, Lucia believes that the main goal of engineering is to solve complex problems and aim one’s talents at interesting projects. This is true for any person in any discipline. This is why it is vital we engage young people to understand their innate passion and develop their abilities.
