A number of new Higher Education courses are springing up in the UK with one common feature - they are all appealing to a more diverse range of applicants. And with a need to encourage more women and under-represented groups into engineering these new courses are very welcome.

This free one day workshop organised by the Women's Engineering Society will take place on 18 October at the Warwick Manufacturing Centre and will look at these various new models of engineering education. Our speakers will explore the different courses and ideas that are currently in the planning with a view to sharing best practice and creating a new type of inclusive engineering education.

Registration is required. PLEASE BOOK HERE
