A society where people won’t be boggled when you say you’re a girl studying engineering. This society is for both women and men who believe that girls are capable to contribute in science equally and want to help increase the ratio of women in Engineering from the current 9%. We do this through helping women advance in their careers early, making a network of professional women as well as helping younger girls see what they can achieve in this field.
We organise a variety of events to aid our members to network with the industry and academics. They range from inspiring talks, panel discussions to site visits. These talks are about giving our members the chance to gain skills and start figuring out where they want to go.
The Women Engineers society connects women engineers of both undergraduate and postgraduate level across all UCL. We organise fun socials with good music, free food and good conversations.
We want to be able to inspire and encourage girls still at school to study and pursue engineering in their career. We do this through careers fairs and workshops.
Any student in the Faculty of Engineering is considered an engineering student. The Departments are: Biochemical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil, Environmental & Geomatic Engineering (CEGE), Computer Science, Electronic & Electrical Engineering, School of Management, Mechanical Engineering, Medical Physics & Biomedical Engineering, Science, Technology, Engineering & Public Policy (STEaPP), and Security and Crime Science.
Faculties such as Mathematical & Physical Sciences (MAPS) and the Bartlett also have students working on engineering-related projects.
The membership (student/associate) is FREE, giving you access to all our events and chances to win sponsorship to attend relevant external events. Please contact the society secretary if you wish to become a member.
The events are open to members only unless we specify otherwise. However, you may join the society at the start of any event if you haven’t already – just remember to register on Eventbrite so that we know you will be attending!
