2018 Women in Engineering Conference

Women in Engineering Conference - Monday 30th July 2018 to Wednesday 1st August 2018

Girls aged 15-17 from schools across the UK are invited to apply for a fully funded place at this unique residential conference hosted by the University of Aberdeen.

The conference, which is being run in partnership with St Margaret’s School for Girls and is generously sponsored by Chevron, will provide a wonderful opportunity to explore engineering both in a university setting and in the workplace.

Staying in halls of residence supervised by experienced teachers, successful applicants will benefit from a travel bursary and a highly interactive programme rich with hands-on activities and face-to-face contact with female engineers.

A visit to the Integrated Operations Centre at Chevron’s headquarters in Aberdeen will also allow participants to interact with engineers working on and offshore.
