"It doesn't feel any different being a girl in engineering- the only downside is when practicals require greater physical strength."

"In 2014 only 14% of  students starting a Computer Science degree at Cambridge were female, with Engineering and Mathematics also having gendered admissions rates."

"It does feel like there is a problem with attracting girls to this course, especially with the gender ratio."
