The list, compiled by the Telegraph in collaboration with the Women’s Engineering Society (WES), features the UK’s top rising female stars of engineering chosen from more than 500 nominations. View the list here.
Kirsten Bodley, Chief Executive of the Women’s Engineering Society (WES), the organisation that founded International Women in Engineering Day, commented: “We had a very high response to the campaign this year and were hugely impressed with the entries. This list of inspirational younger women shows the breadth and depth of talent and innovation across all engineering sectors. It is a great way of encouraging the next generation to enter the engineering and allied sectors and for women to succeed there.”
