Women in Engineering at University of Queensland
The problems that engineering teams in any industry face are diverse, so the people that solve them need to be too. That’s why The University of Queensland have set up an award winning gender equity program, called Women in Engineering (WE).
The program focuses on educating female high school students about engineering careers, works to support women studying engineering at university and also acts as a connection point to the industry to help graduates transition successfully into careers.
Their goal is to get female participation rates in engineering studies to 30% by 2023, a big leap from just a couple of years ago. Currently, they have a female participation rate of 24.5% and both students and teachers that have engaged with the program at a high school level say that Women in Engineering has improved their understanding of engineering.
For more information on the program and how you can be involved see the UQ Women in Engineering site here.
The natural gas industry directly employs thousands of Australians and continues to create jobs in local communities across the country. Not only that, industry jobs are well-paid. The average wage for workers is over $160,000 a year (Australian Bureau of Statistics), which makes it Australia’s highest paying industry. That’s great for those with jobs related to natural gas, but it also helps keep local communities running too.Explore
