Women in Engineering
Women in Engineering Group
The Women in Engineering Group is a new group to bring together undergraduates, postgraduates, researchers and staff. We aim to support women through informal mentoring and networking to promote your professional development. The events will occur once per term.
The first event will take place on Wednesday 7th March in George Fox LT3 from 2pm to 4pm with external speaker Jenny Roberts. Jenny is a mechatronic engineer, currently working for Gaist Solutions on BridgeCat, a mobile bridge inspection system designed to inspect and re-open bridges more quickly after flooding has occurred.
Jenny will talk about her career as a mechanical engineer and about her passion to work on projects that benefit people, including designing safety devices, playground equipment and disabled aids.
Meet our Staff and Students
Find out more about some of our female engineers and their experiences of and motivations for working in engineering. We hope that you will find their profiles of interest and will help you to understand a bit more about what we do, why we do it, and why engineering is such a great career choice.
