Chemical engineering is..... for women

Published on: Friday, 16 March 2018

CIT graduated our first female chemical engineer in 1984.  Since then, just over 200 women have graduated.  This year's Institution of Chemical Engineers' dinner coincided with International Women's Day.  The image below of the female chemical engineers in attendance demonstrates that, of the engineering disciplines, chemical engineering has the highest proportion of women, ranging from recent graduates to senior managers with global responsibility.  These graduates are drawn from diverse countries and diverse schools of chemcial engineering, united by a common profession.
