The Department of Computer Science at UCL is dedicated to increasing the number of women taking up Computer Science as a career. There is a huge deficit in the numbers of women in STEMM subjects, the IT industry and Computer Science, and we want to be part of the growing movement to address this. Women in Computer Science is for information about departmental strategies, including networking opportunities, events, career support, and school outreach activities.
