About Us

Founded in 2004, the Women in Engineering Society at Ontario Tech University, is a non-profit organization within the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. It was created by a female engineering professor and an engineering advisor to address the issue of a lack of female engineers within the faculty. Since its creation, Women in Engineering has grown to include over 100 female engineering students.

We foster a welcoming and engaging space for female engineering students to create a sense of community on and off campus.

We connect female students to future employers and engineering career opportunities across canada, and showcase successful female engineering professionals.

We equip our students with professional skills, connections, and inspiration to prepare them for their professional careers.

We give back to the community by running outreach events to encourage and inspire young women to pursue an education in Engineering.
