Engineering Inspiration - the sixth annual WES student conference - brings together over 150 students and engineers to celebrate a shared passion in engineering and technology and to open students' eyes to career possibilities.

"Really positive. I felt like I was submerged in an environment of positive thinking, I came away from the event feeling more confident about my future."

The conference is again generously supported and hosted by Aston University.

A dynamic environment creating career confidence, where women engineering students join workshops, panel discussions and activities to:

  • gain insights into emerging technologies
  • meet and learn from role models
  • develop career-life balance strategies
  • hone self-awareness and communication skills

The 2014 conference brings 50 early/mid career engineers from Arup, Selex ES, PG, JLR, Transport for London, Malvern, E.On, National Grid and many others to sahre their career experiences to help shape your future.

Stories from 2013

109 students and 46 engineers enjoyed two days at Aston University sharing technical inspiration and career stories. Speakers came from the very top of large corporate organisations right through to previous delegates returning to share their stories of starting work.
