Teesside University is renowned for its courses in engineering, computing, computer games, animation and digital art but we want to do so much more to really address the gender gap and drive diversity.
Setup in January 2022, our Women in Engineering and STEM project at Teesside University is designed to inspire, celebrate and drive real change for girls and woman wanting to embark on exciting careers in STEM subjects.
Working with our researchers, academics, students and industry partners this site showcases inspiring woman and shares some of the exciting projects we are working on.
Have a look at the projects we are already doing and get in touch with us if you want to get involved or collaborate.
Be inspired by the stories from our awesome female students, graduates and staff, and find out more about how you can start your career journey with us.

To support you on your STEM career journey, we offer a range of undergraduate courses, degree apprenticeships and postgraduate conversion courses in computing, engineering, IT, computer animation, games and digital art.
Alternatively, if you are looking for a taster or short course to kickstart your journey to a STEM career - we run summer, winter and online digital skills bootcamps throughout the year which can help equip you with new skills, boost your confidence, and help with a career change or be the first step towards a degree.
If you are thinking about studying with us, check out for our scholarship and mentoring opportunities to support you while you study.
And if you are still at School have a look at our year 8, 9 and 10 targeted events to give you a taste of all the STEM subjects that we offer.

Women's Engineering Society - Tees and Tyne - Students and Academic Staff Event for International Women in Engineering Day 2022 (INWED).
On behalf of the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) Tyne and Tees Cluster, we would like to invite you to attend a co-ordinated event with the region's University Engineering Departments. This event is to celebrate the International Women in Engineering Day in advance. The event will take place in a hybrid mode over two hours. During the first hour each University will have a local programme allowing networking and providing lunch.
At Teesside we have three confirmed industry speakers:
Our speakers will be sharing the highlights of their careers, challenges they have faced, and their main achievements.
For the second hour, we will join the other four Universities online. We will have a talk by Elizabeth Donnelly the CEO of WES followed by a panel presentation and discussion involving representatives from the participating universities.
While the event is to celebrate women’s career in engineering, it is open to our male colleagues and students.
The research tells us consistently that having access to a female role model, can be life changing, particularly for girls from disadvantaged backgrounds. This can be an hour with a woman, a senior figure who is outside their influence, or it can be over a sustained period of time. The research tells us those girls have life changing experiences, light bulb moments.
