Cambridge University Women in Engineering Society (CUWES) is a student-led society focused on helping students on their journey towards a career in engineering. Our main aims are to:

– Foster a supportive environment, where our members can engage with and learn from one another

– Contribute to our members’ professional development by organising industry-related events

– Inspire prospective students to choose engineering-related degrees through outreach

Though our focus is on supporting women and non-binary people, as they are an underrepresented group in the world of engineering, we encourage all Cambridge students with an interest in engineering to join CUWES and attend our events and all our events are open to everyone regardless of sex, gender or background free of charge.
