Aberdeen stages Women in Engineering conference

The second Women in Engineering Conference is being staged at Aberdeen Universitys School of Engineering with the fully-funded residential course running until today. The event is giving 45 girls, aged 15 to 17, an opportunity to explore engineering in both a university and workplace environment. Yesterday, an interactive programme with hands-on engineering-based tasks and speed mentoring sessions with female engineers was followed by a visit to BP’s Aberdeen HQ. Professor Igor Guz, head of the university’s engineering school, said: While progress is being made in encouraging women into engineering, the percentage of women in the profession remains low. Through initiatives like this, we are working to be at the forefront of efforts by schools, universities and industry leaders to tackle this challenge.
