This year International Women in Engineering Day takes place on 23rd June, and it celebrates the amazing work that women engineers around the world are doing. In our School we want to always support and help women to advance in engineering.

To celebrate IWED2021 we spoke to two of our School's PhD students, Ella and Elektra. We found out about their research, how they ended up where they are now and why being a woman in Engineering is important.
