Ingénieuses 2022

The Conference of the Deans of French Schools of Engineering (CDEFI) is organising the "Ingénieuses" Competition, for the twelfth consecutive year. The aim is to encourage more girls into science and technology courses and engineering careers.

In 2022 and as every year, Ingénieuses will reward engineering schools undertaking projects in favour of gender equality, as well as students and women engineers with a significant personal, academic and professional career.

Nine prizes will be awarded:

This prize is intended to reward an engineering student whose background, ambitions and community involvement are examples for younger students. The winner will receive a prize worth €1,000.

North African Engineering Student Prize

Worth €500 in addition to a trip to Paris to attend the prize-giving ceremony, this prize will be awarded to a student in an engineering school that is a member of the Agence universitaire de la Francophonie in North Africa and whose career path and commitment provide an example to younger people.

2 prizes for women engineers

These awards are intended to recognize the career paths of two working women engineers, regardless of age and experience, who, through their ambition, personal and professional choices and commitment to gender diversity in engineering, are potential ambassadors of their profession for young girls. The two winners will each be awarded a prize of €500.

Four prizes for engineering schools

Engineering schools are invited to present one or more projects that meet the objectives of the initiative. Projects can be presented by the school's management team, by administrative or teaching staff, by individual students or groups, by a student association, etc. A prize of €500 will be awarded to each of the winning projects.
