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.

  • The first computer algorithm was developed by a woman
  • The frequency hopping theory behind Bluetooth was developed by a woman
  • The director of the Johnson Space Centre is a woman
  • The chief engineer on the Brooklyn Bridge was a woman
  • The inventor of modern industrial management was a mother of 12 children

“We need to give women the opportunity to see that by picking engineering they will not be bored one single day at work and they will enjoy it. We do not have to settle for what is conventional or for what we think a woman should do.” – Narcisa Pinzariu, Project Engineer, IMG.
