The Department of Engineering received an Athena SWAN Bronze award in September 2013 and is planning to apply for an Silver award in 2016.
The Athena SWAN Charter is a scheme which recognises excellence in Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Medicine (STEMM) employment in higher education. The Charter was launched in June 2005. Any university or research institution which is committed to the advancement and promotion of the careers of women in STEMM in higher education and research can apply for membership.
The Department is committed to the principles of the Charter and wants to achieve an improved gender balance at all levels from student through to academic and research staff.
This website site has been set up to provide a focal point for Women in the Department of Engineering at Cambridge.
Here you will find details of Department and University-wide initiatives, lectures, training and events aimed at women, particularly in the STEM subjects but of interest to all.
If you have any suggestions or feedback, please e-mail the women in engineering e-mail address at email@example.com
The WE50 campaign aims to raise
awareness of the skills shortage facing
the industry and the huge discrepancy
between the number of men vs women
currently in Engineering professions, to
change perceptions and encourage
young women to consider Engineering
as a viable and rewarding career.
