Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

The Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering is committed to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (ED&I). Our aim is to build an inclusive community that actively attracts a diverse range of people and supports staff and students to achieve their potential.

We believe that diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact in our research and teaching and enhances the experience of our students. Our main focus is to increase the proportion of female engineers, addressing the current drastic under-representation. Read our commitment in full.
