Natalja Petkune

Natalja is part of the structural engineering team in our Surrey office and she has been an active Graduate member of the Institution of Structural Engineers for the last two years. She is a committee member of Surrey Regional Group and a chairperson of Surrey Young Members Group (YMG).


Part of her involvement includes organising technical and social events for students and graduates, such as pub quizzes, technical talks and membership workshops.


She has recently been elected a representative of YMG in IStructE council in 2018. The Council meets twice a year in February and July and is attended by IStructE board members, elected council members, chairmen of UK regional and international groups. Agenda for the past February meeting included reports by IStructE president and chief executive about current and planned activities of the institution, discussion of the Regional Group activities and forum with workshops on “The Future of Our Profession” with keynote presentation by Josef Hargrave.


We wish Natalja the best to maximise this opportunity to keep learning and develop further through the IStructE.
