Women in Engineering

National Women in Engineering Day (#NWED2016) is an international awareness campaign aimed at raising the profile of women in engineering.

Abertay will be marking the third year of NWED on 23 June with an event dedicated to Scotland’s leading female engineers. “Gender Balance – Building the Future” also offers the opportunity to find out more about the vast range of career opportunities available to women in an industry in which they are still under-represented.

At Abertay we are very proud of our own women in engineering. From managing our water network and engineering our trunk roads to wind turbine innovations and earthquake engineering, our staff and students – past and present – are making a mark on society.

We talked to nine women – staff, students and graduates – to get their perspectives on being a woman in engineering.
