About

The Women's Engineering Society (WES) was started in 1919 and has been producing its Journal "The Woman Engineer" quarterly since 1919. The journals are currently held in the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) archives.

The journals contain a wealth of knowlege not only of women in engineering but the journey of engineering in the UK since World War 1. The early journals also contain technical papers by female engineers. It is important that we do not loose the records of these WES role models and we maintain their achievements for future generations.

Since 2004 the journals have been digitised and are available to download here. The IET also digitised the first journal for WES.

In 2019 WES will be 100 years old and we have started a project to catalogue the history of WES; digitising the journals is one part of the project.

All digitised journals will be made available online to download.

The money donated will pay to digitise the journals.

Risks and challenges

The only associated risk is that the company who has agreed to digitise the journals can no longer do the work and we have to go to another company who might be more expensive.
