Women in Engineering Network (WEN)

WEN (Women In Engineering Network) is a forum for female students in the Faculty of Engineering to meet informally, support each other and make friends.


WEN members have gone snowboarding together, played laser strike, helped out at Enginuity Day (the annual open day for girls), belonged to three way mentoring programmes in schools and industry, arranged cocktail evenings and eaten lots of pizza. In 2009 the Inaugural Breast Cancer Appeal Day at engineering was run by WEN with members in balloons and wings. Members have also arranged study groups to help each other decide on specialisations, run tutorial groups in "sticky" subjects, and helped publicise the fact that “yes – you can be an engineer and a woman!”
