Women in Engineering

It’s talent and drive not gender that matters in engineering.

That’s our philosophy at the AMRC Training Centre and that’s why we’re working hard to break down barriers and stereotypes to change the perception of engineering for young women and eliminate the gender gap within industry.
 
We are passionate about engineering and we are passionate about equality and diversity. Much like Sheffield graduate Amy Johnson, who became the first woman to fly solo from Britain to Australia, and was president of the Women’s Engineering Society from 1935-37, we share her determination to prove that women are just as good as men at engineering.
 
That’s why we have an unwavering commitment to inspiring young women to become the engineers of the future: changing lives and the world for the better.
