We coordinate programs and resources to support engineering students from a diversity of backgrounds. Our primary goals include:

  • Increasing the pool of qualified women who enter our Engineering college and assisting in retaining these students in their chosen academic programs.
  • Assisting women students in preparing for graduate programs in engineering and careers in engineering.
  • Providing women students with resources and services to enable their success in their academic and professional pursuits.
  • Facilitating the development of leadership and career enhancing skills as well as mentoring and networking opportunities.
  • Working with other programs and units in the College of Engineering to provide a positive environment for the success of our women engineering students.
  • Introducing engineering as a career option to pre-college students.
