Women in Engineering

This isn’t a women’s only society, this is respect and acknowledgement for the women’s commitment and contribution in Engineering.

#IAmAnEngineer

In conjunction with International Women in Engineering Day (Sunday 23 June), and to highlight diversity across engineering and technology – not just gender – the IET has launched a new social media campaign #IAmAnEngineer, which features a variety of real-life engineers.

Gender Diversity

From space exploration and autonomous vehicles to advancements in healthcare and sustainable energy – engineers are inventing new ways to do things and finding solutions that will make this world a better place.
The opportunities are endless and the industry is always evolving, but there is a huge shortage of engineers – just 12% of those working in engineering occupations are women (source: Engineering UK).
