As the University of Surrey's Women in Engineering Society, we aim to provide social, educational and networking opportunities for everyone who wants to see more women involved with engineering and STEM subjects.
You don't have to be female and you don't have to be studying engineering to come to our events, just have a passion for supporting women within the field. Everyone is welcome! Check out when our next event is here and we look forward to meeting you!
What can you expect?
We hold regular social events where our members can get to know each other and relax after a long day of lectures. These include pizza nights, movie screenings and collaborations with other societies.
To give our members an insight about life as a female engineer we often invite external speakers to share their thoughts and advice with our members.
All of our events offer invaluable networking opportunities. This could be with fellow students or professionals working within the industry. You never know who you could meet!
Got a great idea for an event? We'd love to hear from you -
why not send us a message telling us all about it?
Who are WES?
We are affiliated with WES, the Women's Engineering Society. They are a charity and professional network of women who offer inspiration, support and development. Since 1919 they have been supporting and inspiring women to achieve as engineers, scientists and leaders to meet their vision:
a nation in which women are as likely as men to choose to study and work in engineering
Benien, our Treasurer, sits on the charity's University Groups Board, which consists of representatives from WES affiliated student groups across the country. They meet quarterly to share best practice and provide feedback on issues that are relevant to women engineering students.
