Maroua is  currently an Engineer with the Structures Team with Properties and Building.  I am young professional engineer with a passion for Designing Building Structures.  I am a motivated individual and extremely eager to further develop my technical skills. I enjoy challenges that help me understand and solve complex structures. I enjoy working with a team and at the same time am able to work independently. During my time with WSP, I participated in a company challenge to develop new ways to improve integration within different Design Disciplines. My team  and I  won that challenge. As a result, WSP Parsons Brinkerhoff has implemented some of the proposed solution from my team's into  the organization. I enjoy being in the  Construction and Consultancy Industry and look forward to facing more exciting challenges in the future.
