Despite numerous initiatives over the past 30 years, women continue to be a small minority in engineering education and employment in much of the world. In a recent Australian report Addressing the supply and quality of Engineering graduates for the new century by Emeritus Professor Robin King it was recommended that engineering education must become more female-friendly, and specifically that a more inclusive curriculum must be defined and implemented. The selection of the knowledge and skills to be included in any curriculum is the responsibility of the faculty members, in conjunction with accreditation bodies, and the choices made will therefore shape student perceptions of the current priorities, attitudes and practices in the profession.
