National Women in Engineering Day was set up by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) to celebrate its 95th anniversary last year. On 23 June 2015 WES wants to focus attention on the great opportunities for women in engineering, at a time when it has never been more important to address the engineering skills shortage. By encouraging girls into engineering careers we will not only be increasing diversity and inclusion – a business imperative – but enabling us to fill the substantial future job opportunities that have been predicted in this sector.

The Women in Engineering network group at Oxford decided to contribute to NWED this year by compiling a video discussing why they were inspired to study engineering and why they enjoy it, in order to help change the perception of this career choice in the public.
