Find out how the Faculty of Engineering supports women students, and read the stories of women who have studied Computer Science and Engineering.
The Wellington Faculty of Engineering is committed to supporting the development of future female scientists, technologists, and engineers. A more diverse workforce in these areas will help New Zealand's social and economic prosperity, as well as benefiting individual women.
We support the student group, VUW Women In Tech, which was founded at Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington in 2018. We encourage our senior undergraduate and postgraduate female students to act as mentors and tutors for first- and second-year students, to ensure they flourish at university.
Through our outreach programme, we visit girls' colleges around the Wellington region to encourage young women to study Engineering and Computer Science.
