The Leigh UTC celebrates Women in Engineering Day with a visit to BAE Systems

To celebrate International Women in Engineering day last Friday (23rd June) we were very fortunate to be able to take our ‘UTC Girls’ to BAE Systems to attend a ‘Girls only’ morning event to explore the many opportunities within the world of Engineering and STEM careers.

BAE Systems are committed to developing a diverse workforce and inspiring more young women into engineering. During the visit the students had the opportunity to meet some of BAE’s female engineers from across their UK business and profile their journeys into engineering. Students will also develop an understanding in the wider world of Engineering opportunities with BAE. Students even took part in an a helicopter simulator to experience what is is like to be an aerospace Engineer.

Due to security students were unable to take photographs. We will share the professional photographs of the day as soon as they are available.
