Evening Lecture with Dr Nina Baker,

‘More than trailblazers – 100 years (and more) of women engineers and the military’

Monday 7th October 2019, 7pm

Dr Nina Baker is an independent engineering historian specialising in the history of women in engineering. She has had a varied career, mainly in traditionally male-typical fields, starting out as a deck officer in the Merchant Navy. She later studied for an engineering degree as a mature student, followed by a PhD in concrete durability. Dr Baker will bring to life some amazing histories of women engineers working in and for the armed forces. This year is the centenary of the founding of the Women’s Engineering Society, which has always had close ties with the former women’s services. You may already have heard of Beatrice Shilling and how she solved the fatal engine problem in the Spitfire, but there are so many other intriguing stories of women’s contributions to engineering.
