WES Virtual Student Conference

20th November 2020

WES Student Conference 2019


The WES Student Conference takes place every year as a key fixture in the WES calendar of events. This year, owing to current restrictions, the event will take place entirely online on Friday 20 November 2020. The event is aimed primarily at female engineering and allied undergraduates aged 18 & over.

During these unprecedented times, this event seeks to inspire students with talks, conversations, webinars, panel sessions and online 'meeting spaces' focusing on the theme 'Shape the World'.

Along with key industry leaders and expert speakers, the online sessions will enable students to learn and hone useful personal and career development skills at this critical time in the employment market.
