Student Women in Engineering Day, a great Success!

DCU Women In Engineering held a very successful Open Day that showcased engineering to TY students from St. Mary's Glasnevin.

The students gained an insider perspective into the life of an engineering student here in DCU along with hearing from female engineers out working in industry.

The main aims of the Open Day were to show the range of careers that are available to engineering graduates along with removing the stereotypes of women not being able for engineering. In all-girls schools especially, there is a lack of knowledge and less focus on STEM subjects which can lead to many young women not entering the engineering arena or believing they can succeed in it. Through talks from experienced women in industry and hands-on demonstrations given by female engineering students, this day proved that women were more than capable of becoming an engineer.
