Top 50 women in engineering under 35

Over 500 nominations were received for this year’s top 50 list compiled by the Telegraph in collaboration with the Women’s Engineering Society (WES). The list was announced in conjunction with International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) – a day dedicated to raising awareness of the careers available to women in this profession and to celebrating the achievements of female engineers.

The candidates on the WE50 list represent the broad range of engineering roles available including those from the traditional built environment, energy, aerospace and transport sectors, but also including names from academia as well as authors and outstanding students and apprentices.

Kirsten Bodley, Chief Executive of the Women’s Engineering Society (WES), the organisation that founded International Women in Engineering Day, commented:

"We had a very high response to the campaign this year and were hugely impressed with the entries. This list of inspirational younger women shows the breadth and depth of talent and innovation across all engineering sectors. It is a great way of encouraging the next generation to enter the engineering and allied sectors and for women to succeed there."

Grahame Carter, Matchtech Managing Director said:

"The top 50 list is a great way of recognising the achievements of some of the top female engineers in the UK and I’d like to congratulate everyone who made it on this year’s list. The fact that over 500 nominations were received is testament to the huge number of female engineers who are making an impact on the industry and hopefully, even more women will be nominated next year."

“Matchtech actively supports Women Engineering Society’s efforts to raise the profile of women in engineering and promote the job opportunities that are available to women in the industry.”
