Women in Engineering Network

The Department of Engineering Science is committed to advancing women’s education and career prospects in Engineering.

The Women in Engineering (WiE) network was established in the Department of Engineering Science in 2012 with the intention of organising talks, social events, career development events and other networking activities. Membership of this group consists of postdoctoral research assistants, postgraduate students, undergraduate students and other academic staff.

Over the years, it has evolved into a dynamic, supportive community of women engineers across many disciplines and career stages. We also work closely with the Department to raise issues relevant to gender diversity within the Department.

Women in Engineering, Oxford

This video features interviews with a diverse cross-section of female engineers at Oxford trying to change the pre-conceived notions of engineering. They discuss its importance to our everyday lives and the types of skills required for an engineering career. This contributes to our efforts to inspire the next generation of female engineers.
