FEMENG – Glasgow University’s Female Engineers
FemEng is a student network which aims to tackle the gender imbalance within engineering and its effect on students, the younger generation and industry professionals.
The group has a number of focuses including outreach work with schools, networking events with industry professionals, social activities and international collaborations.
The group also successfully pioneered ‘FemEng in Rwanda’, the University’s first student-led learning project in collaboration with the University of Rwanda. This initiative brought together female engineering students at both universities with the common goal of encouraging more high school girls in Rwanda to pursue further education in the field of STEM.
The society aims to bring both genders into the discussion and invites anyone with an interest in the group to join.
