Celebrating Women in Engineering

Engineering Village (official sponsor) has partnered with Elsevier Engineering journals to support National Women in Engineering Day (NWED16) in the United Kingdom on June 23rd. In support of #NWED2016, we've launched an international campaign to raise the profile of #womeninengineering. We have interviewed outstanding female engineers to learn about interesting engineering projects that they have worked on over the years to better understand their research and what motivates them.
