The role of women in engineering

The role of women in engineering

According to the Women’s Engineering Society (WES), less than ten per cent of engineering professionals in the United Kingdom are women, the lowest figure in Europe. Latvia, Bulgaria and Cyprus are leading the way, with female engineers making up almost 30 per cent. Here, Helen Marston, engineer at specialist resistor manufacturer, Cressall, discusses the role of women in engineering throughout history.
 
In 1914, the National Council of Women was created, with the aim of getting women into work as men joined the armed forces to aid in the war effort. These women changed the face of engineering forever, being highly praised for their skills and expertise.

Honing in on detail: why aesthetics in wiring accessories are increasingly important

Honing in on detail: why aesthetics in wiring accessories are increasingly important

People have higher expectations when it comes to how things look, and wiring accessories is no exception. Building designers, product specifiers and installing contractors are just as interested in how wiring accessories look on the outside, as how easy they are to install and use. Soft curves, smooth lines and slim plates are some of the features that are desirable, but aesthetics no longer exist for the sole purpose of looking good. Innovative, modern and often minute external details make wiring accessories easier to use and improve safety; critical factors in the commercial buildings market. Success in this area can set an accessory apart from the rest in a competitive playing field.
