Engineers are the super heroes of the world, more women need to sign up

Co-founder of WomEng (Women in Engineering), Naadiya Moosajee, says the purpose of the organisation is to create a world where there is gender parity, where women can freely say they want to be engineers and won't be seen as "abnormal".

The percentage of women graduates in engineering is still below 20% in many countries and this is a result of bad messaging says Moosajee.

Engineering is seen as this dirty profession, where you wear overalls and boots and work in very bad locations...

Naadiya Moosajee, Co-founder of WomEng

These days engineers sit and design offices... I say that we are the super heroes of the world.

WomanEng is running programmes to get girls in high schools involved in engineering. Moosajee says they make it fun and competitive for girls, showing them them how to build cars and power them.

WomanEng operates within four countries - South Africa, Kenya, Brazil and Mexico.
