Promoting opportunities, employers and events to female students and graduates Background It is widely acknowledged that STEM careers are male dominated. Just 15% of Engineering graduates are female.

The figures are 19% for Computer Studies and 38% for Maths. The shortfall is hardly surprising when we consider that 13% of the overall UK STEM workforce is female and there are relatively few female STEM role models as a consequence. Whilst we are unable to influence the subjects selected by students, we can focus our attention on ensuring that females who have opted to study a STEM degree are made aware of our services.

An energy engineer is involved with the production of energy through natural resources, such as the extraction of oil and gas, as well as from renewable or sustainable sources of energy, including biofuels, hydro, wind and solar power. Energy engineers are focused on finding efficient, clean and innovative ways to supply energy. They work in a variety of roles including designing and testing machinery, developing ways of improving existing processes, and converting, transmitting and supplying useful energy to meet our needs for electricity. They research and develop ways to generate new energy, improve the efficient use of energy through reducing emissions from fossil fuels, and minimise environmental damage. Typical work activities Energy engineers can have an extremely varied workload, depending on the sector they are in or individual project they are working on.

In an increasingly competitive job market, much has been said about the need to gain relevant work experience before graduation. IAESTE not only provides traineeship experience but also the valuable experience of working abroad. Work experience gained abroad enhances your independence and flexibility, communication and foreign language skills, and contributes to your personal and academic development. Employers know that if students have successfully overcome the challenges brought on by international work experience, they will stand out from the crowd at interview. IAESTE is open to degree level science, engineering, technology and applied arts students in the second year of study and above. The majority of traineeships take place in the summer months, although longer periods are also available.

IAESTE can also provide you with the opportunity to gain valuable volunteering experience in one of our many local committees. STEM Women. Engineering Gateways - Learning Whilst Earning.
