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.


A quick overview of our key contributing students on campus that help our various academic societies function from STEM Ambassadors to Drone pilots.

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).
