Arabel Vilas on British Tunnelling Society's BTSYM Professional Development Committee
Congratulations to Arabel Vilas who has been selected to the British Tunnelling Society’s BTSYM Professional Development Committee. Arabel is a geotechnical engineer who is currently working on the Melbourne Metro Tunnel independent design check and value engineering project. She has a great deal of experience of tunnelling and underground spaces, including HS2 and the Thames Tideway project.
As tunnelling is a specialised field of civil engineering, tunnelling engineers need to gain a wide knowledge and skill base to reach a level of competence in this field.
The Professional Development Committee supports young tunnelling engineers to further develop their tunnelling knowledge by providing site visits, workshops and presentations.
