Women in engineering



The Faculty of Engineering is committed to encouraging and supporting women in engineering. We have been awarded an Athena SWAN Silver Award twice for our dedication. The intake of undergraduate female students in 2013/14 was 5% above national average and the percentage continues to grow. 

We offer support to staff and students as well as run outreach initiatives to inspire girls in schools and colleges to pursue a career in engineering.




Hear from  our students why they think engineering isn't just for boys.  

Be inspired by our staff who haven't let their gender stop them from succeeding in engineering.
