Event description
Women, Technology, Innovation and Strength

About this Event

Only 12% of all engineers are women in the UK, and only 46.4% of girls 11-14 would consider a career in engineering, compared to 70.3% of boys and only 22.2% of students starting A Level Physics in 2018 were female.

But it didn’t start out that way as at A-Level more girls get A*-C grades than boys – including Further Maths, Maths, ICT and Design and Technology. (Engineering UK, 2018)

So what happens to deter women and girls from this exciting field of study and work? And can you imaging if more girls stayed in technology and engineering, what would they be designing and creating for our future use?

Enabling Technologies and Innovation Competencies Challenge ETICC project, part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) offers support and expertise from an academic team and use of university facilities – laboratories and equipment – for research and development of new products with the application of the below technologies. The project is designed to stimulate innovation in small/medium businesses and help businesses grow. This event was developed for women and is dedicated to International Women's Day.

Come and find out more about women in innovation, technology and strength.

Join us for a show of our capabilities.
