My Books

I write to bring the wonders of engineering to everyone! Most books on engineering are aimed at other engineers, but mine are full of stories of people, materials and objects to inspire curiosity in us all.

I have a Bookshop where you can browse and buy some books that I love, and support independent shops while you're at it!

BUILT - The Hidden Stories Behind Our Structures


With colourful stories of her life-long fascination with buildings – and  her own hand-drawn illustrations – Roma uncovers the extraordinary  secret lives of structures.


How Was That Built?

I'm really excited to say that my children's book is now available for pre-order and will be released on 16 September 2021!

Join Roma Agrawal, the award-winning young structural engineer who  worked on The Shard, for an exciting behind-the-scenes look at some of  the world's most amazing landmarks.



NUTS & BOLTS - Seven Small Inventions that Changed the World (in a Big way)


I'm currently working on my third book, which will be published in Spring 2023.
