Coventry University academic and qualified aerospace engineer Dr Tosha Nembhard says there needs to be more support to help women get into engineering. Dr Nembhard left Mauritius to start her course at the university in 2002.

After graduating she rose through the ranks at Collins Aerospace before returning to Coventry University to teach and she believes the key to building on that progress lies in increased support in schools and colleges, in industry, and from the government.

One of the UK’s leading independent events for engaging young people in engineering is returning for the first time since Covid-19 struck.

The Design & Make Challenge, which is organised by the Manufacturing Assembly Network (MAN), will take place on July 12th at the WMG Academy for Young Engineers in Solihull and is on the hunt for additional Birmingham schools to take part.
