June Reads – International Women in Engineering

It’s nearly the end of June and we have had a busy month at Energy Coast UTC but there is still some time to raise a huge high five for the girls and women who have come through our doors and thrive in the world of engineering. Here at Energy Coast UTC we have been celebrating Women in Engineering Day and taking time to remind ourselves of – as Beyonce puts it – ‘who runs the world!’! So whether you know a fabulous female who can fabricate just about anything or you are simply in awe or the ladies who have lead the way in terms of pioneering discoveries, here are 10 books that applaud the women who are inspiring change every day:
