Women in Engineering

Welcome to the Women in Engineering Student Society website.

Founded in 2012 by Professor Elena Rodriquez-Falcon in support of the Women in Engineering initiative at the University of Sheffield, UK.

Our Women in Engineering initiate aims to redress the gender imbalance of the discipline. Women are currently underrepresented in engineering – a fact that leads to a loss of talent and innovation in the discipline. Perceptions of engineering can act as a barrier to women entering the field of engineering. Raising the profile of talented female engineers and widening the general understanding of engineering are key targets of the programme.

Our Student Society aims to inspire the next generation of engineers and raise awareness. Involve engineering students with projects and outreach events as well as improve the employability of engineering students.
