Graduate student and faculty women’s program

Networking and career enhancement

The college sponsors lunches every month during the semester that includes a short talk by a woman scientist, engineer, or mathematician highlighting how her technical studies informed her professional career.

Distinguished speaker series

You can also learn from accomplished women in science and engineering through our Distinguished Scientists and Engineers from Underrepresented Groups Speaker Series.
