In the UK, only 12% of the engineering workforce is female, according to the 2018 State of Engineering Report, by Engineering UK. A review published by the UK government has found that the UK has the lowest proportion of female engineers in Europe. Engineering generated 23% of the UK’s total turnover (2015-2016) and makes up 19% of the total workforce. The engineering sector is also growing, with a 6% rise in the number of UK engineering enterprises between 2015-2016.
