It has been well documented that there is a shortage of females studying engineering, and huge efforts are being made to encourage more to consider this subject. However, it has also been noted that many females who study engineering do not stay in engineering once they have completed their studies.  This Women in Engineering Forum will be based around a panel discussion of this topic. Our panelists are:

+ Stefania Radopoulou, 4th year Phd student in the Structures Research Group who is working on automating the way that road conditions are monitored, using sensors that already exist in vehicles.
+ Dr. Jenni Sidey, a research associate studying combustion. She completed her PhD at the University of Cambridge in 2015. 
+ Cindy Valreau - final year PhD student in aeroacoustics.

The event will be chaired by Camille Bilger, a PhD student whose research is on the simulation of fuel injection in jet engines.

This event is open to all. A sandwich lunch will be provided.  Please sign-up to attend by noon on Tuesday 9 February via the link below so that we confirm numbers with the caterers.
