26 October, 2017 - Black in Engineering - Redressing the balance of ethnic minority students in industry

Time: 18:30:00 - 20:00:00

Organised by UCL Biochemical Engineering

Engineering has a conversion problem. Why is only 7% of the workforce from Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) backgrounds, yet around 23% of UK engineering students are from a BME background? Research from the Royal Academy of Engineering [1] shows stark differences in employment outcomes between engineering graduates of white and minority ethnic origin. There was a 20 percentage point difference between the proportion of white engineering graduates entering full-time employment (71%) and their black and minority ethnic (BME) counterparts (51%) after 6 months. EqualEngineers, in partnership with UCL, will explore some questions around barriers within education attainment and barriers at the transition from education to employment. A panel of leading experts in engineering education, industry and diversity and inclusion advocacy will share their thoughts and opinions on the barriers facing students.
