Our People Spotlight series gives you an inside look at our technical experts around the world. This week, we are highlighting a senior systems interface and integration manager from our Transit and Rail business in the Canada region and providing an insight into their inspiration and work. 

Lamiaa Eldakhly has more than 25 years of experience in the railway industry, working on railway megaprojects in Africa and the Middle East. Throughout her journey she has specialized in systems interface and integration, collaborating with colleagues from various disciplines such as architecture, communications, signals and telecommunications, as well as civil, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering to create cohesive systems solutions. Lamiaa also works closely with clients and contractors to define, monitor and control systems integration processes, ensuring successful and fully integrated systems. 

Tell us about what inspired you to join the industry.

I have always loved studying mathematics and logical thinking, which is what made me want to study engineering. After earning my bachelor’s degree, I became interested in joining the public transportation sector which serves people in their daily lives – improving personal mobility and access to jobs, education and leisure activities.  

Following graduation, I was fortunate to be involved in the Cairo Metro Line 2 project where I thoroughly enjoyed learning about system and sub-system details such as traction power supply, communication and signalling – and how they are integrated to form a robust transportation system. For every project I work on, there are always challenges to meet and new lessons to be learned and applied in future projects. This is why I believe that this field is exactly where I am meant to be.
