Women in Engineering Program
SDSU’s Women in Engineering Program was created in Fall 2019 to engage and provide support for undergraduates, graduates, and female faculty to create a welcoming community within the College of Engineering. SDSU’s WE provides resources and various opportunities to help them succeed at SDSU in addition to the opportunity to network and be mentored by local SDSU alumnae and industry representatives. SDSU’s WE Program also provides support and STEM outreach to K-12 students through the College of Engineering’s Femineer® Program.
The mission of SDSU’s Women in Engineering Program is to engage and provide support for undergraduates, graduates, and female faculty by cultivating a welcoming environment of knowledge and growth among a safe community within the College of Engineering in order to produce competent and passionate graduates for the engineering workforce. A special component within the WE Program is the College of Engineering Femineer® Program which strengthens the pipeline through engaging in K-12 STEM outreach.
