- We were awarded Athena Swan Bronze status, in recognition of our direct support for women within the School of Engineering, enabling women students to transition successfully into industry. The Athena Swan project is a charter scheme, aiming to address issues around gender and diversity. Our Women’s Engineering Network - a friendly group of women students and staff - regularly meet to explore all aspects of engineering and to offer each other mutual support at university and beyond.
