Friederike Philipsburg - I’m Following My Dream

Ever since she was a little girl, Friederike Philipsenburg was sure that one day, she would work in the world of engineering. She knew the career path she wanted to follow meant she would go from building model cars to “building the impossible”.

Today, Philipsenburg helps design future vehicles at Ford Europe's European headquarters in Cologne, Germany; as well as encouraging future generations of female engineers to follow in her footsteps.

As part of Ford's recruitment process, Ford offers regular opportunities specifically to female engineering students, to find out more about the opportunities that exist within the company, talk to experts and, this year, meet Steven Armstrong, our president and CEO, for Europe, Middle East & Africa. It was through just such a process that Philipsenburg first joined the company.

Girls may not feel drawn to engineering because they don’t think it’s a field where they can work with people and solve social problems – but it really can make the world a better place. Now, I’m working within a global team which really will define and shape the future of mobility. Although I’m excited about what that could bring, I know I will never forget the dreams that brought me here.
