University Groups Board

The WES University Groups Board (UGB) is made up of representatives of WES Affiliated University Student Groups from across the country.  Chaired by Helenor Cox (, the group meets quarterly to share best practice, aid networking and provide valuable feedback to WES on issues relevant to women engineering students. They self-motivate, self-organise and self-deliver their own projects which have included articles for the newsletter, members area content and the INWED University Poster Competition. The board sits for a minimum of 1 year with the formal change over at the start of the academic year.
