L-R: Lucy Williams (Architectural Engineering), Sheila Minhaj (Construction Management and Surveying), Jane Meneely (WiP), Emma Watson, Fiona Alfred (WiP), Edel Mcmahon (Urban Planning and Property Development) and Tina Irvine (Civl Engineering).

Key figures from the Association of Women in Property (WiP) visited the School of Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure and Society on Monday 24 November.

Following Urban Planning and Property Development student Emma Watson winning the Central Scotland Women in Property Student Award 2014, WiP Executive Director Fiona Alfred accompanied by WiP Central Scotland Student Awards Co-ordinator, Jane Meneely, met with the School's four nominee students for the 2015 award as well as key members of staff.

The students received advice about how to prepare for the regional heats which take the form of an interview and presentation. Colin Elliot, who coordinated the nominations from the School said: "We are very grateful to Women in Property for continuing to run this important student competition which celebrates the vast potential of female students across the built environment."

Launched in 1987, Women in Property aims to enhance the profile of women in the property and construction sector. The WiP Student Awards are open to female students studying a Built Environment degree and celebrate female talent and ambition coming into the industry.
