Welcome to the School of Engineering 'Women in Engineering' pages!
Women in Engineering Scholarships Programme
Supporting women in STEM
The School is committed to the principles of Athena SWAN and wants to achieve an improved gender balance at all levels from student through to academic and research staff.
Athena SWAN Award
- Recruitment Processes
- Induction and welcome for new staff members
- Better gender representation in brochures, leaflets and at open days
We recognise that there is still a lot of work to do, in November 2015 we applied for an Athena SWAN Silver award. For this award we have detailed the work we have done to date and how this has had an impact and will be evidencing our continued commitment to promoting gender equality through further initiatives.
The School's Athena SWAN submission was developed by our Athena SWAN Self Assessment Team:
Secretary: Amy Hamson, Administrative Officer (HR)
Kayleigh Hyslop, Administrative Assistant
Nathalie Wride, PhD student

Women in Science
As a School we are working hard to promote and encourage women in science, as part of this we are celebrating our own female staff, students and researchers through our Femal Engineers Page. On this page you will find profiles of female members of the School of Engineering, you might find it interesting to read our female engineering profiles.
There are University-wide opportunities for networking:
and external groups such as:
- Women in Science and Engineering (WISE)
- WISE GetSET Women
- Engineer Girl
- Engineering Development Trust
- Every Woman
- IET Women's Network
- National Womens' Network
- Talent 2030
- Women in Engineering
- Women's Engineering Society
Working with the Women's Engineering Society, the IET have created a poster celebrating female engineers. Click the image to download a PDF.
