FIND OUT ABUOT THE 2013 EVENT HERE

The fourth WES Student Conference built on the success of previous WES Doris Gray Student events – bringing 105 women engineering students together for two days to connect and be inspired by each other and by professional engineers. The programme offered a mix of personal development and confidence sessions with insights into emerging technologies. At the formal dinner students were able to chat in more depth with early/mid career engineers from different companies including BBC, Sellafield Sites, Capita Symonds, Morgan Sindall, Jaguar Land Rover, Malvern Instruments, Selelx Galileo, Tata, GE Energy. Katalytik, Protean Electric and many others.

Jaguar Land Rover also sponsored twelve student bursaries

The event provided an opportunity for women who might be one of only a handful on their course to meet other technical women and to extend their network and meet women who are managing to balance their work and family life. The excitement and energy at the event was palpable and students called for next year to be even bigger! And the noise echoed around the Aston Campus at the photocall - as 105 women students shouted 'We love engineering' making everyone stop!

Feedback includes: "It's amazing", "Fantastic to see so many women engineers together" "I am stunned at the quantitiy and quality of the questioning, the level of interest".
