Women in Computer Science

The Department of Computer Science actively promotes women in Computer Science. As a department we try to take positive action in increasing the number of women participating in Computer Science (both entering and remaining) as well as encouraging women into the computing industry as a whole.

We presently have four female academic lecturers in the Department of Computer Science.

There have been several women behind important advancements in Computer Science. This Famous CS Women web page briefly describes just a few of them.

Below are some useful links to groups and organisations that also support women in Computer Science.

Prospective female students may be interested in knowing that we offer a prize just for women kindly donated by Google. It is awarded each year to a female student who is studying in the Department. The prize is intended to encourage women to enter and remain in the field of Computer Science at Bristol, and to demonstrate the continuing development in the relationship between Google and the Department.
