The Women in Engineering Event (WIE) is one of the largest professional organisations dedicated to promoting women engineers and scientists to inspire women and girls on an international scale. The hope of this company is that people will follow in the academic interests and carry out a career in the engineering or scientific fields.
Recently they took to Wiltshire where more than 150 school pupils were left inspired by attending the event. Professionals from the industry gave demonstrations and talks to the youngsters who were in amazement at the potential they could have if they applied themselves to this path.
The WIE believe more young people need to be made fully aware of the possibilities that are available to them especially targeting women as engineering remains a male dominated industry. Awareness was raised to exactly what type of careers are available within the country and the region and what women can gain from this profession.
Students reported to have a fantastic time with an informative discussion claiming they particularly enjoyed the virtual reality activity the college held, around twenty five percent have said they are seriously considering taking up a vocation in the field.
