Women in STEM are you in or out?


Engineering and STEM is at the heart of the UKs economic future and the UK is currently acknowledged as a world leader in several key sectors. To maintain this leadership requires an ongoing pipeline of talent drawn from all parts of society. Women engineers and related STEM professionals who have left the sector, but who could return, have a key role to play.

This survey is focused on obtaining a picture of this latent talent pool. We are keen to understand more about the employment situation of women who have obtained an engineering or related STEM qualification (science, technology, engineering and maths) and how the industry can attract these women back into the workforce.

This questionnaire can be completed by any woman with a STEM qualification in engineering, applied science, IT or maths.

Initial results from the questionnaire will be available in June 2014 on the websites of our partners listed below and the final report will be published in the Autumn of 2014.



TRS is currently at various stages of working with over 40 universities; others are expected to participate and promote TRS throughout 2013.

TRS has a growing network of employers who will progressively be using TRS to advertise their graduate and internship vacancies to view and apply for.


TRS is a new industry approach to working with UK Further Education Colleges and employers to support and promote the recruitment and retention of skilled people into UK advanced manufacturing and engineering (AME) jobs.
