Edinburgh Napier University
Edinburgh Napier University is an ambitious, innovative and inclusive University that offers a range of accredited, practical and engaging courses, focused on preparing students for a rewarding career. We are very proud of Edinburgh Napier University for several reasons, including:
• 95% of our undergraduate students and 96.2% of our postgraduate students are in work or further education six months after graduation (HESA 2016/17).
• In 2015, we were awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for our internationally acclaimed work in timber engineering, sustainable construction and wood science. This is the most prestigious award for the UK higher education sector recognising the impact of the University’s research on business, industry, environment and society both nationally and internationally.
• We have supported more than 500 student start-up companies and a 2014 report by Biggar Economics named us the most successful University in Scotland for graduate enterprise and start-ups."
WES is an excellent way of promoting engineering to young females and inspiring them, gives membership to current female students, opportunities to meet and network with other female engineers and academics and plethora of opportunities for volunteering.
