Roma Agrawal MBE

Award-winning Engineer, Author and Broadcaster

Roma Agrawal MBE (Mega Badass Engineer) is an award-winning engineer, author and broadcaster. From footbridges and sculptures, to train stations and skyscrapers – including The Shard – she has left an indelible mark on London’s landscape. She is a tireless promoter of engineering and technical careers to young people, particularly under-represented groups such as women.

As an engineering story-teller, she presents documentaries, hosts podcast Building Stories, and is now excited to be writing her third book about engineering, Nuts & Bolts, which will be out in 2023. Her first book Built was published to glowing reviews in 2018, and she also has a children's book out this year.

Break the Black Box

Roma Agrawal considers the journey our technology has taken, from the simple to the seemingly inscrutable. She delves into the stories of some of our most important, but small, inventions, and explains why it’s vital for our future to look deeply into the black box that has become our engineering.
