Pioneering Scotswomen in Engineering: from the Ancient Universities to the Hall of Fame - Dr Nina Baker 

Thursday 28th November

Talk Lab, University of Glasgow Library, 7:00pm

It is over a century since women were first able to start to become engineers. Many of the first women were not merely pioneering a new career for females but were also making important contributions to engineering in the UK. At this Friends’ talk, Dr Nina Baker will share some of the terrific stories about amazing women, from her years of research into these hidden histories, focusing on women who were engineering graduates of the Scottish universities or who worked in Scotland. This talk is part of the centenary celebrations of the Women’s Engineering Society, founded in 1919.
