Gender equality in engineering
Engineering offers a stimulating and rewarding career and yet women remain underrepresented across the UK sector.
There are many complex reasons that contribute to this, not least because historically engineering professions have been occupied in the majority by men.
However, the landscape is changing with industry determined to encourage more women into the profession.
The University of Plymouth and the School of Engineering have a critical role to play in preparing the next generation of engineers, from all backgrounds and identities to thrive in their future careers.
The School further aspires to support all academic staff to achieve their goals in research and teaching.
