Women in Science
As a School we are working hard to promote and encourage women in science, as part of this we are celebrating our own female staff, students and researchers through our Femal Engineers Page. On this page you will find profiles of female members of the School of Engineering, you might find it interesting to read our female engineering profiles.
There are University-wide opportunities for networking:
and external groups such as:
- Women in Science and Engineering (WISE)
- WISE GetSET Women
- Engineer Girl
- Engineering Development Trust
- Every Woman
- IET Women's Network
- National Womens' Network
- Talent 2030
- Women in Engineering
- Women's Engineering Society
Working with the Women's Engineering Society, the IET have created a poster celebrating female engineers. Click the image to download a PDF.
