Women in Science, Engineering & Technology (WISET)

Women in Science, Engineering & Technology

Women in Science, Engineering & Technology

WiSET (Women in Science, Engineering and Technology) is a network for all female students, technical, research and academic staff in the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences.

Women are currently under-represented in science, engineering and technology (SET) fields and a large number of SET students enter non-SET careers.

WiSET aims to encourage more women to develop careers in SET and retain them in these fields.
