This is the place where women in engineering and architecture thrive.
We are a diverse, inclusive and friendly community ready to welcome you.
Did you know we are the first university in the UK to be awarded the Athena Swan Gold Award and were the first engineering department in the UK to be awarded an Athena Swan Gold Award ‘for excellence in advancing gender equality across higher education and research’? We still retain this important accreditation today and are proud to continue to champion women in engineering.
We want to encourage more girls and women to fulfil their potential, whether you’re interested in studying or working in engineering and architecture. We’ll support you whichever path you choose, from undergraduate and postgraduate study to research, academia, technical services, administration and management.
We believe that diversity in engineering is a necessity, because diverse teams bring together different perspectives and creative approaches which ensure that solutions can be for the many, rather than a few.
You might be interested to know that the university also has Bronze Race Equality Charter status, which recognises advancing race equality in higher education and were the joint-first university to pledge support to the Technician Commitment, which aims to support technical staff in higher education and research.
