Women in electronics and robotics

Within the School of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics there has been a historic and consistent commitment to promote and encourage women into the industry.

We are striving to eliminate the gender imbalance that exists nationally in the engineering sector.

Nora Schillinger – MEng (Hons) Robotics graduate

I never thought that I would graduate with a job already secured (before I had even started my third year), and I can only thank the support of the University staff for that!
