Louisa Flitter is a Civil Engineering Senior Project Manager at the Environment Agency, and she was chosen as a Bicentenary year honorary fellow for her work as a STEM ambassador for women in engineering and being a role model to current LJMU students.
She was presented by Professor Ndy Ekere, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Faculty of Engineering and Technology) at an event held at St George’s Hall in November 2023, where Louisa was inducted as a fellow alongside nine other outstanding individuals.
“I had the honour and privilege to be welcomed as one of ten new honorary fellows to LJMU. The experience was truly magical, humbling and certainly fuelled my imposter syndrome.”
– Louisa Flitter
Louisa’s work involves delivering flood risk management schemes across the North West for the Environment Agency. Her passions are water engineering, sustainability, and environmental impact of construction.
She completed a Higher National Certificate (HNC) in construction and the built environment, and later went on to study civil engineering as a mature student with us here at LJMU. She graduated with a First in 2017.
Since then, she has been named as one of the ‘Top 50 Women in Engineering’ in 2018, was recognised as an Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) future leader, has been the Chair of the ICE Merseyside branch and is a member of the Association for Project Management (APM).
“I am proud to support the university that has presented so many possibilities and opportunities for myself and all. I look forward to continuing this engagement for many years to come.”
She has also been an inspiring guest speaker at many university careers and research events for our students and staff, especially those with a focus on women in engineering.
