What is Women in Engineering?

The goal of the Women in Engineering program is to create a sense of community between female engineering students, and to provide programming that will add value to your educational experience. We regularly host events that revolve around topics like; support, community involvement, networking, and professional development.

Previous events include:
  • Co-op/Internship info session
  • Interview Preparation
  • Soldering Workshop
  • Engineering Company Tours
  • Professional Networking
  • Alumni Dinner
  • Conferences

Why get involved?

You will also have access to many volunteer opportunities that can add experience to your resume, such as on-campus events, and outreach initiatives, where you can share your engineering knowledge with youth throughout the community. You are encouraged to get involved with our Peer Mentorship program where you will be matched with an upper-year female engineering student who will give advice and help guide you through university.
