22 June 2022

As part of UCL Engineering's INWED 2022 celebrations, women from across the Faculty have shared information on their work and research and reflected on their experiences as a woman in their discipline. They have given words of advice for girls and women who may be interested in becoming an engineer, as well as their thoughts on how to be an ally to women in engineering. 

We are featuring videos from Isobel Mackay at UCL Chemical Engineering who talks about renewable energy illustrated by her Lego Wind Turbine, Noora Almarri, from UCL Electronic and Electrical Engineering tells us about an implantable medical device being designed to support those with motor neuron disease and Kate Bellingham, a TV and Radio presenter turned PhD student describes her research on gender imbalance in engineering education.

Take a look at 2022’s video interviews to discover more, find out more about the day, and see how we have celebrated in previous years. 

International Women in Engineering Day was originally launched in the UK on 23 June 2014 by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES), in order to celebrate its 95th anniversary. Receiving UNESCO patronage in 2016, the initiative became international for the first time in 2017, adopting its now familiar moniker, INWED, and enabling the celebration of women in engineering to become global.
