Top 50 Women in Engineering Under 35 list announced on International Women in Engineering Day, 23 June 2017

The list of the top 50 Women in Engineering Under 35 (WE50) was published in the Daily Telegraph on 23 June 2017 to coincide with International Women in Engineering Day (INWED).

The list, compiled by the Telegraph in collaboration with the Women’s Engineering Society (WES), will feature the UK’s top rising female stars of engineering chosen from more than 500 nominations.

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.”

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.
