Because I wish I had a role model when I was younger
The demand for engineers is high, and growing, yet we’re falling short of the number of qualified engineers needed.
Many of the people we talk to say that they wished they had a role model to inspire them into engineering, and the IET Young Woman Engineer of the Year Awards does just that. The winners and finalists of these prestigious awards help us to inspire the next generation of engineers.
As a registered charity, the IET relies on the generosity of our members and the engineering community to invest in the next generation through our education and awards programmes.
