Cambridge University Women in Engineering Society (CUWES) is a student-led society

focused on building an inclusive community for women and non-binary engineers, and

supporting them on their journey towards a successful career.

Our aims

  • 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.
