The international institute of women in engineering (IIWE) is organising a three week summer seminar entitled 'women engineers: pushing the limits' from 1 to 20 July in Paris, France.

The seminar includes sessions on:
- the history of engineering;
- engineering education worldwide;
- women in management;
- managing women engineers;
- ethics;
- sustainable development;
- networking.

The programme also includes industrial visits and round table discussions, and the organisers emphasise that the seminar is open to both men and women.
