Women in Science and Engineering

Exchange ideas, gain confidence, and network with female peers and colleagues

The Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) program is a collaboration between the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.

While both schools provide a broad range of programs to ensure the success of their students, this special initiative provides support and extra-curricular opportunities geared toward female students in the STEM fields with the goal of increasing the recruitment, retention and success of women in the sciences, math and engineering.

The WiSE program offers an orientation for incoming freshwomen to meet professors, visit laboratories, run experiments and learn their way around campus at the start of the semester. Events throughout the year include guest lectures, a brown-bag lunch series, community outreach, and breakfast meetups with professors.

Whether you are a new student with an interest in science, or an upperclasswoman or graduate student majoring in a STEM discipline, we invite you to participate in WiSE.
