Women@NTU was formalised in 2018 as the culmination of the momentum built around Women in Engineering, Science, and Technology (WiEST) initiatives. The initiative was inspired to increase the percentage of female participants in STEM fields and recognise the importance of role models in influencing the career choices of future women in the field.
Women@NTU held the inaugural launch and its symposium in 2014, featuring prominent women engineers, scientists, and technologists. Since then, it has grown to include programmes supporting early-career female researchers, mentorship networking platforms, seminars, and workshops hosting STEM topics and beyond across other disciplines within the campus.
Women@NTU aims to uplift, connect and bring all the women together in the NTU community, including students, educators, researchers and administrators.
