Student / Apprentice

Women undergoing approved training leading to a qualification in engineering, technology, or related sciences. Men, or those not studying a STEM subject, should join as an Associate Student Member.

PhD, post grad students, apprentices, year in industry, and industrial placement students should apply as Student Members (or Student Supporters) unless their income is such that they can afford to pay the Full Member subscription in which case they should apply as a Member.


Subscription: £15 per annum


Open to:
Anyone who is interested in the work that WES does.

Becoming a supporter is a great way to stay in touch with WES for free, but doesn’t provide access to any of the individual Membership benefits, voting rights at the WES AGM, or eligibility to join WES boards or working groups.

Supporter Membership grades are:

Supporter, Student Supporter, and Apprentice Supporter


This is our highest grade of membership. Fellowships are awarded to individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the field of engineering or a related sector, to the sustained encouragement of women in STEM, or in service to the Women’s Engineering Society. Fellowships are open to women engineers who are entitled to the post nominal FWES. Associate Fellowships are open to women who are not engineers and men who are entitled to the post nominal AFWES. Our Fellows act as ambassadors for the promotion of improved diversity in engineering. The annual cost of Fellowship is £100 per annum, with a concessionary rate of £50 for unemployed, members on maternity leave and retired members.
