Women in Engineering Development Program

Women in Engineering Development Program

The Women in Engineering Development Program is a series of workshops, seminars, networking opportunities and other activities that has been accredited by UNSW Advantage. This means that students who participate fully in the program can have it listed on their AHEGS as a co-curricular activity.

The goal of the program is to connect women in engineering, enhance their educational experience and prepare them for their professional careers. The program also provides the opportunity to volunteer in outreach activities, particularly those aimed at promoting engineering to school-aged girls.
