FemEng is a network aimed at empowering women in the School of Engineering at the University of Glasgow.
Throughout the year, FemEng provides a variety of different opportunities to its members. We organise discussion panels, social events, and networking events with inductry professionals and usually with a specific focus on how women help shape the engineering world today. We also run a mentoring programme which connects students, usually Year 2 and above, with a mentor in industry to help guide them on their short and long term career goals. One of our most successful projects is our Outreach Programme in collaboration with Glasgow City Cousil. Last year we reached 24 schools in Glasgow and more than 500 pupils with presentations and interative activities to introduce them to the world of engineering and its various disciplines.
FemEng also successfully pioneered ‘FemEng in Rwanda’, the University’s first student-led learning project in collaboration with the University of Rwanda. This initiative brought together women studying STEM subjects at both universities with the common goal of encouraging more high school girls in Rwanda to pursue further education in the field of STEM. This has lead to the introduction and planning of a future project ‘FemEng in Malawi’ which was launched in 2020 and aims to reach the same levels of success as the previous trips to Rwanda.
