Women make great engineers

WAVES (Women – A Voice in Engineering Society) a society run by female engineering students at DIT has successfully run the Engineering Role Model Day since 2006. This event offers an opportunity to female secondary level students to meet with female engineers working in industry face to face and find out what a creative and exciting career engineering offers them. The event has run annually now with over 200 students attending each
year and has played a major role in helping female students decide to study at DIT.

If you are interested in joining our next Role Model Day on 27th February 2013, please email
