Welcome to the Department of Engineering Science's Women in Engineering network.

The network was established in 2012 to organise talks, social events, career development events and other networking activities for all members of the department. Membership consists of postdoctoral research assistants, postgraduate students, undergraduate students and other academic staff.

Over the years, it has evolved into a dynamic, supportive community of women engineers across many disciplines and career stages. We also work closely with the Department to raise issues relevant to gender diversity.

By joining our mailing list you will get advanced notice of activities and seminars, and you can also propose and organise events for the network.
