International Women in Engineering Day

23 June 2022

International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) is an international awareness campaign created by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES). It aims to raise the profile of women in engineering and highlight the amazing career opportunities available to women and girls in this industry.

Here at Loughborough, we are dedicated to supporting an equitable, diverse, and inclusive environment – to create a better world, together.

Dr Ksenia Chmutina Director of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (ABCE)

Hear from our students and alumnae

Celebrating this year's theme of Inventors & Innovators, our students and alumnae have come together to share the inspiring work that women engineers at Loughborough are doing to make a difference and build a better future for everyone.

Join our events

Our Engineering Schools will be hosting tea and cake for staff and Doctoral Researchers, and we'll also be going live on Instagram where Hannah Eastlake, Head of Media at LUMotorsport, will give a tour of their facilities.


With this year’s theme of Inventors & Innovators, we're bringing LUMotorsport to your screens with a tour by Hannah Eastlake, Head of Media at LUMotorsport! They are responsible for producing a new car every year for the Formula Student Competition. Unlike other Formula Student teams, LUMotorsport is entirely run by students, with guidance from the academic and technical staff only when required.
