Students set up Women's Engineering Society

The Faculty of Engineering is celebrating National Women in Engineering Day today, to commend all of our female engineering students and alumni.

Student’s from engineering have chosen today to launch the faculty’s very own Student Women’s Engineering Society. The Society has been formed by three of our students: Farah Khoury, Sophie Day and Annabel Downing. Their aims are to strengthen the link between female students in the faculty and the women making great strides in the sector, as well as increasing employability for female students for when they graduate from Leeds.

In addition to the launch of the society, the faculty, in collaboration with Women in Science, Engineering and Technology and the North Yorkshire Young Members panel of the iMechE, are hosting an event to celebrate women engineers in Yorkshire. The event will feature talks from some of our region’s most exciting female engineering mentors and role models.
