Women in Engineering

We're tackling unequal representation in research and teaching and improving career progression for female academics. Our aim is 30% female representation by 2030.

On 23 June each year, we celebrate Women in Engineering Day. The theme for 2020 was 'Shape the World'. We talked to 17 brilliant female engineers, drawn from undergraduates, postgraduates, teaching and technical staff across the faculty. Find out about their lives and work in our series of blogs

More information on faculty initiatives to advance equity, diversity and inclusion can be found on the Engineering Includes Me web pages. 

Engineering needs to draw on a much wider diversity of viewpoint and talent in order to change enough to develop truly sustainable solutions to today's challenges.
