Drawing on archival material, this paper will examine the ‘university for women’ initiative, which arose at Tongland, the venture whereby women took advantage of opportunities created by war’s changing social norms to enter the engineering filed. The Tongland works was an off-shoot of the much larger Arrol-Johnston factory at Heathhall in Dumfries, which manufactured whole aircrafts and lower powered aero engines, made to established designs licensed from Austro-Daimler before the war.
