It is widely acknowledged that women are underrepresented in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and maths) at university and in the general workforce. Recent data from UCAS demonstrates that women make up only 35% of STEM students in UK universities.
While there have been some gains, as evidenced by the WISE campaign data, showing that there are now more than one million women working in core STEM roles across the UK, there is still much to be done to increase women's representation in this field.
At UWTSD we want our students to know that they have access to mentoring and support from our female academics who have forged a career in STEM. We hope that by sharing our lecturer's own journeys, we can inspire you to see yourself as an Architect, Engineer, Computer Scientist, Quantity Surveyor, Environmental Scientist, or any one of the diverse opportunities that are available to women in STEM.
