    Abstract

    In this paper, we present results and recommendations on gender representation and diversity in Automotive and Transport Design courses in the United Kingdom based on a small interview study of students and one tutor. With high levels of interest and investment in encouraging (gender) diversity in STE(A)M subjects and professions, this paper provides a contemporary account of gender dynamics in a transport design course. Our analysis shows a persistent, unequal ratio of male and female students and staff, as well as the need to address issues of gender and inclusivity more closely. Lastly, we call attention to the students’ discourses and present some recommendations for HE and institutions interested in diversifying their recruitment and personnel.
