Women in Engineering

22 Dec 2016

Traditionally, women have been under-represented in engineering. However, more and more companies and universities are recognising the importance of a balanced approach to challenges and the value of diversity. UNSW Engineering has above-average female enrolments at 22% (the national average is closer to 17%), but we are actively recruiting women and have set a goal of boosting female enrolments to 30% by 2020.


At the UNSW Faculty of Engineering the Women in Engineering Program aims to:

  1. Inspire girls to pursue engineering degrees and careers for information please check the UNSW Women in Engineering website

  2. Support women studying engineering at UNSW such as our Head-Start Award

  3. Celebrate the successes of Female Engineering Graduates
