About Women in Engineering Queensland
“Our vision is that engineering becomes an inclusive profession which values, supports and celebrates the contributions of women in the engineering team.”
The Women in Engineering Queensland Division (WIEQ) serves all women in engineering by organising and supporting activities that attract, support, celebrate and retain women in the engineering profession.
We do this by:
- Assisting in positively changing the perception of engineering.
- Increasing awareness in the industry about issues facing women in the engineering profession.
- Providing increased networking opportunities.
- Showcasing the importance of women in the engineering team.
Our members are from a range of engineering disciplines and experience and include university students, graduates, young and established professionals who want to develop solutions that make a difference.
Want to get involved? Please send us an email.
In addition to the WIEQ committee which is based in Brisbane, there are Women in Engineering local groups in numerous regional areas, so please email us if you would like to be put in contact with a representative in your area.

Please see our Facebook page for the most up-to-date information on events, news and photos.
As a group we are inspired by the diverse personalities, creativity and unique approach women offer not only to the engineering industry but to the community. We acknowledge the role of women in society and offer family friendly activities where appropriate.
