    Plus, best not to ask on here, as a lot of people are a***holes, especially today.

    because women choose not to read Engineering or related disciplines at university.

    As I have witnessed first hand in my degree (Electronic Engineering), women are perfectly capable in doing engineering. All they have to do is put their mind to it. It's *******s to think that they are being shunned away from it, if they were strong willed enough they would go into the field.

    I don't believe that there is a catch-all reason.

    Why isn't their more men in teaching jobs? Nursing jobs? Because they don't pursue those jobs as much as women do for various reasons.

    Its because of the huge patriarchy conspiracy... /s

    Seriously though, it's because they don't want to. Whether it's because its too much effort or not interesting is up to them.

    Women are graduating far more than males... now that is an issue in terms of how education is taught. If it was the other way around you would get feminists banging on about how male names on test papers equal higher marks given or some bull ****.

    Why are men far more likely to committing suicide than women? That is the biggest killer of young men by the way. But women care more about lack of females in job of which most women are not interested in.

    Define "shortage". Because it seems to me that you're implying, via the use of that word, that more women need to be in engineering, which is absurd; people do what they want to do, not because they feel like they should be "representing their sex" or some such silly *******s.

    Do women make better engineers? Are they more efficient, or offer a different, more practical approach to various situations? If the answer if a resounding "no", and I really do think it is, then there isn't a "shortage" of women engineers at all; a "shortage" implies a need, and if the need is not there then neither is the alleged shortage.
