Take Five: Case studies from UTC Reading students

Watch the following videos of our students answering five questions about their experiences of UTC Reading:











IET Women in STEM talks

UTC Reading is working with the IET (Institute of Engineering and Technology), hosting a series of talks on Women in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).

Talks are delivered by women in a range of careers and from a variety of backgrounds, aiming to inspire young people to see the wealth of opportunities available to them in STEM.

Armelle Boisett from Kapsch CarrierCom delivered the first talk of the series, which proved to be a fantastic success. She spoke about her life and career and brought up several interesting points, including how she was inspired by teachers at school who used to make learning more memorable. Read more about Armelle's talk.

WISE Member

UTC Reading is a member of WISE, a campaign to promote women in science, technology and engineering. UTC Reading joined WISE to support the national issue that there are simply not enough women in STEM subjects. As a college specialising in computer science and engineering, it is vital that we bridge the gap and can provide an essential workforce of women into these fields.

Stephanie Mitchell, Director of Industry Relations: "Having been passionate about creativity, design and engineering from a young age, I am inspired to share my positive experiences as a female in this sector; I am very keen to dispel the myth that engineering is a male profession."
