Full Members (MWES)

Full Members (MWES)

If you are not already a member, we urge you to consider joining WES and supporting our work to encourage more gender diversity in engineering. WES needs members to survive, and your support will ensure we make it to our 100th year in 2019.

Our Full membership suits women in the fields of engineering, technology (including IT) or science, or those with a background in these areas and allows you to become more profound in establishing gender diversity in engineering. Not only will you be provided with valuable support to develop your professional career, but you will also be provided with opportunities to improve practical skills through countless volunteering opportunities. Through WES membership, you could become a role model and inspire more young women to consider engineering as a career. Subscriptions are at £52 per annum. We also offer a concession rate at £26 for unemployed and retired members. As a WES member, you will be able to enjoy a range of benefits, which include:

  • Supporting WES and its campaign for gender diversity in engineering, IT and allied sciences
  • Being part of a network of women engineers, and using your resources to encourage others to join the profession
  • Become a role model and spokesperson for young women
  • Keep track of issues relevant to women's engineering events and news through our quarterly journal and monthly e-newsletter
