Girls in Engineering

To mark the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day and 2018 The Year of Engineering, the School of Engineering and Technology at the University of Hertfordshire is hosting a special event to celebrate the occasion.

On Saturday 30th June 2018, we are inviting all girls (from year 8 through to year 12) and young women along with parents to delve into the world of engineering and technology and its endless opportunities. We are here to show you how exciting this area of study is, support you with your decisions and show you your options all whilst having fun, food and meeting new people.

Girls in Engineering (GIE) offers you the opportunity to:

  • Gain hands on experience of engineering through our interactive activities
  • Understand how engineering and technology impacts the society we live in
  • Meet our current engineering and technology students, graduates and lecturers
  • Get involved in practical activities such as building and operating electronic circuits, problem solving with an egg, marshmallow challenge and get involved in laser cutting
  • See demonstrations of our flight and F1 simulators

Parents and siblings, we haven’t forgotten about you! We invite you to get involved in the activities or sit back and relax in our parents only zone.
