Quotes

As a technology pioneer, Knowles regards STEM disciplines as being "at the heart of our business and an integral part of the future of communication technology" says Jeffrey Niew, Knowles president and CEO
"Getting that opportunity was a great experience," Lau said. "The reason I want to be a biomedical engineer is to improve the lives of others. This summer, I got to see what my work can do for people."
"The discrepancy between the number of engineers the UK's higher education system produces, and how many we need annually shows the UK has a long way to go to fill this potential skills gap. The most effective way to begin to address this gap is to tackle the low uptake of engineering degrees by women, and, further down the line, the continuation into long-term engineering careers."
She said "There's nowhere near enough engineering graduates to meet the needs of British industry. In particular, there's a desperate shortage of women. This report shows young girls still see engineering as a career for clever boys. We all need to do much more to stop girls excluding themselves from these career options at a very young age."
