Black Engineers Society exists to empower and provide a safe space for Black engineering students within the faculty of Engineering.




There currently isn't a society within the faculty of Engineering that caters only to Black students. Current BAME in STEM reports show that there's a big issue tackling the attainment gap for Black students in STEM in higher education. Black students face unique problems at University in comparison to other ethnic minority students that only other fellow Black students can understand. Having an in-house society for Black engineering students to discuss their unique experiences and provide a safe space and try and find methods to tackle these issues would prove beneficial for us.



  1. To connect Black engineering students across different departments and different schools.
  2. To act as a safe space to raise unique experiences Black engineering students might face.



The group will be involved in a few local outreach activities. Encouraging Black students to take up an Engineering degree or study STEM subjects will be one of the key focus of our group. Inviting local Black students to the University and showing them different Engineering demonstrations and telling them life as an Engineering student plus having Black engineers come in to encourage them is something that will be regularly during different times of the academic year. The group will also be active at open day events to encourage Black students to apply to study Engineering at the University of Bristol.
