Please log in to join this organisation.

Do you study any of these engineering courses? Civil and Coastal, Mechanical, Marine and Materials, Electrical, Navigation and Maritime Science, Computing or Robotics.

If so WES is for you! The Women's Engineering Society provides a supportive environment for people of all backgrounds to come together; we encourage the development of our members both academically and socially and we strongly support inspiring the next generation of engineers through STEM activities. Women are a minority in the industry and though we have chosen to highlight women, all are welcome to join.
