Study Group celebrates International Women in Engineering Day 2021

The theme for this year’s International Women in Engineering Day 2021 is ‘Engineering Heroes’ and the Women’s Engineering Society is profiling some of the best, brightest and bravest women in engineering.

As Study Group Managing Director for the UK and Europe James Pitman comments:

“By finding solutions to global challenges, engineers make a vital contribution to improving the quality of life around the world.

“Study Group has helped hundreds of women worldwide progress to undergraduate and postgraduate engineering degrees, many of whom have gone on to exciting careers in the engineering industry.

“To mark International Women in Engineering Day 2021, we are delighted to share this video, which captures the stories of a number of international students studying a specialised engineering pathway programme with Study Group here in the UK; our ‘engineering heroes’.”


Why do international students consider studying engineering in the UK?

There are several reasons why the UK is a great place for international students to study engineering.

• Britain has produced many of the world’s most famous engineers. This proud history is reflected in the quality of teaching at UK universities, which have a strong reputation for excellent teaching, world-class facilities, and industry experience.

• Engineering graduates enjoy varied careers, as their transferable skills mean they can work across most industries.

• UK engineering graduates are in demand around the world, and an engineering degree from a UK Higher Education Institution will be recognised by global employers.
