How we got here: Women in Computing at Heriot-Watt University
11 October 2017 @ 3:15 pm - 5:00 pmFree
This year marked a historic occasion in the Computer Science department at Heriot-Watt University: the number of our female professors doubled from two (Ruth Aylett and Fairouz Kamareddine) to four with the promotion of Verena Rieser and Helen Hastie. Join us as these four professors discuss how they ended up in computing at Heriot-Watt: the education and career choices they made, their experiences of working in computing and the interesting and sometimes unexpected twists and turns their lives and careers took.
This independent event is part of Ada Lovelace Day, a worldwide celebration of women in STEM.
