Recognising that women are traditionally under-represented in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths) studies and the related professions, we are delighted to announce that following an assessment day at Dunton Technical Centre, Essex on September 18th, the winner of the 2017 Ford Prize for Women in STEM Study Competition is Rachel Hayden, who is studying for an MEng in Civil Engineering at The University of Bath.
The prize, which recognises the achievements of women in STEM, encouraging other women to become involved, is awarded in association with the Ford PWN (Professional Women’s Network).
Runners up prizes have been awarded to:
• Shusma Balaji - University of Cambridge
• Styliana Elia – Imperial College
