Wall of women

Engineering is a fantastic career choice for men and women, unfortunately women are woefully underrepresented. Our Women in Engineering has our 'Wall of Women'. Take a look at the range of inspiring, influential and impactful stories from across the Engineering Faculty to see how students, alumni, academics, researchers and professional services staff contribute to our diverse community.

Since then, there are now over 160 universities, education institutions and international organisations that continue to support it. Find out more about the campaign origins, how it's evolved and the global impact it's had.
