I believe women perform about as well as men in science and maths. So if the results are about as good there should be a similar number of women compared to men...
According to the most recent stats available as of march 2015,there were 2,506
women enrolled in undergraduate engineering compared to 14,215 men enrolled in same areashocked..

Based on an estimate of 3% economic growth annually untill up to Dec.2019,
"Over 2,000 new jobs are expected to be created across the surveying profession,split evenly across the construction and property roles"..

As we all know,Engineers are renowned for their innovation,ingenuity and problem solving skills. Yet,the profession still has to overcome its long-standing challenge of attracting and retaining female engineers.
No doubt,construction work is too much like hard work for a lot of men and almost all women.. But I would like to particularly encourage young women to enter this exciting field...
Oya lets go there ladies!! I BELIEVE WE CANgrin

In essence,you are trying to say you haven't seen female block lifter,tiler,electrician,painter and plumber before?shocked

Btw,hope you know engineers..i.e structural,electrical,mechanical,landscape engineers--all have their roles to play? Example,the civil engineers will prepare the design drawings,supervise and construct the project?..

How many women can stay under d hot sun supervising a site from morning till night? Just few... they are only better as structural engineers who would design and sit in d office and just visit the site a few times as consultant engineers.

Your first statement caught my attention sir..Does it mean she can't do it or it's the industry that doesn't believe in her?

i've had experiences with a lot of ladies on site... when I was doing my iT programme my other iT mates(females) always complained of the hot sun, how it made their skin darker and they had to stand from morning till night without really having much rest.... they had to leave and go stay at office with architects and structural design engineers... in my opinion some ladies can do it but just few.

I'd say because most women have very wrong orientation about how their lives should go...

Most of them, also are so men dependent, they even choose a course they're not interested in just because all their my be say ""Na husband house dem go land put""

and the man would be responsible for their needs. so why venture into a profession that requires so much strength

Its a man’s world. Hard truth

I was reading an article last time and it says 97% of all VC funding goes to male Entrepreneurs while just 3% of funding ends up with female Entrepreneurs. Its not just in engineering.

Every innovation ever carried out what is the ratio of male to female. There is like 1000 male to every female. Even google at a time was modifying "she invent.." to "did you mean he invent.. "

Go to schools and look at the number of male to female dropping off kids. It is more females to males regardless of their qualification. I think women tend to tilt to the supportive family role than actually competiting with males in major professions.

Yeah i hear you saying there are woman in various major positions and professions. But compared to males.... The males always have a very large comparative advantage

Women don't like to be equal to man when it comes to a challenging and mental work, they always like to challenge man in an a.c work, I have never seen a woman vulcanizer, I have never seen a woman block moulder, dey always challenge man in office work and be claiming equality up and down
