Women in Engineering
Women’s Engineering Network
The purpose of the Women’s Engineering Network is to help female students build their network within the School of Engineering and Technology in addition to relevant professional fields. We strive to empower individuals toward academic, personal and professional success. The student led program consists of peer mentoring that connects freshmen and sophomore students with upperclassmen peer mentors to meet with on a biweekly basis. Additionally, the program hosts monthly social events to expand the participants’ network and professional development events that provide opportunities to learn, grow, and connect with professionals in the field. These monthly events are open to all female students in the school.
Examples of past professional development events include:
- Career Fair Preparation: learn tips and tricks to stand out in September’s Career Fairs
- Funded Research Event: hear from current students, professors, and programs about their research experiences and apply for your own opportunities.
- Speed Networking with Professional Engineers
- Make Your Resume Shine: improve your resume and connect with representatives with multiple engineering and technology student organizations.
