Woman Marine Engineer – April 1923

Recently a young woman made a sea voyage as a marine engineer. How she came to be preferred to a man is not unfolded but we are informed that she served her apprenticeship during the war years when any form of mechanical aptitude was welcomed in a woman.

Although Miss Drummond is the only woman who has taken her place in the engine room of a steamer, there are many women throughout the country holding engineering positions especially in the electric branch of the profession.

There is actually a woman’s engineering society and this society is holding a conference this week at Birmingham University and schools of technology have been thrown open for engineering courses to women on the same terms as to men.
