5 Facts About Women In Engineering

28 Feb

Today, we have decided to debunk the idea that the engineering sector is a man’s world. Here are five facts about female engineers:  

Fact 1
There is an “International Women in Engineering Day”, which was created in 2014 by the Women’s Engineering Society. This year, it will be celebrated on June 23rd. 

Fact 2
Alongside her job as a famous movie actress in the 1930’s Hollywood, Hedy Lamarr was also an engineer and inventor. She held a technology patent which has been used as the foundation for today’s advanced wireless networks. 

Fact 3
Led by Atkins, a recent survey of 300 female engineers showed that 83% were either happy or extremely happy with their career choices. 

Fact 4
In the last couple of years, there has been a 2% increase in the female engineering workforce. Women form 11% of the UK engineering landscape. 

Fact 5
One in three engineers working on the London Crossrail, which is one of London’s most ambitious projects, is a woman.
