23 June 2017 marked the National Women in Engineering Day, aiming to support, inspire, celebrate and raise the profile of women in engineering.

The event is being organised by the Women's Engineering Society and is very much supported by the Engineering Department.

This day focuses attention on the amazing careers in engineering and technical roles for girls and celebrates the achievements of outstanding women engineers. A number of other campaigns and competitions are running on that day too, and full details can be found at www.nwed.org.uk.
