Queen’s University’s female undergraduate engineering enrolment is 28% this year, with the highest percentage of women engineering students of any major engineering school in the country, according to the university. The current national average for female engineering enrolment is between 17 and 19%. Queen’s Engineering and Applied Science Associate Dean Lynann Clapham says that while the university doesn’t do anything in particular to attract female engineers, she believes many are “drawn to the program’s non-competitive and welcoming approach.” Queen’s News Release
