Women in Engineering, Science and Technology: Education and Career Challenges provides a collection of recent high-quality empirical studies related to the education and careers of women in engineering, science and technology disciplines, with cases on innovative approaches to attracting and supporting women in training courses, and discussions on the effectiveness of mentoring, role models, government policy, and initiatives by professional bodies. This reference work is ideal for professionals and researchers working in the field of education and career development for women in engineering, science and technology, while also offering insights and support to academics concerned with attracting and retaining women in these disciplines, and providing information to members of professional bodies representing engineers, scientists and technology workers who wish to encourage women during their transition from education to the workforce.
