Within the environment of dominant masculinity experienced by women studying Mechanical Engineering, Swansea University’s (SU) Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE) research confirms that women are negatively impacted by demonstrating low self-confidence, self-efficacy, experiencing isolation and lacking relatable role-models.
“50% for the Future” will endeavour to:
- Create a more supported and enriching experience for women whilst studying
- Create a more inclusive curriculum
- Increase focus on mentoring and role-models, to enhance our beneficiaries’ confidence with regards to pursuing a successful career within Mechanical Engineering.
