Women in Engineering
Given the current and future global need for engineering, it is imperative that all human resources are used. Historically, women have been significantly underrepresented in engineering fields, typically making up only 10 – 20% of the engineering work force.
Through programmes that encourage women to pursue engineering studies and retain women engineers in the profession, UNESCO will help to fulfil this human resource need.
