The goal of the Women in Engineering (WIE) program at the University of Delaware is to promote, mentor, and enable the participation of women students and faculty in engineering studies and the workplace. WIE provides activities that bring together female and male engineering students, faculty, and administrators — as well as external representatives from industry, government agencies, and other academic institutions — with the goal of promoting a healthy institutional climate for all members of the engineering community at UD.
Most WIE events are organized by the WIE graduate student steering committee, made up of two representatives from each COE department with three faculty advisors. These students work together to welcome new women engineers to UD, plan the year’s events, and act as a liaison, as needed, between women graduate students and resources for support. Please contact any member of the committee if you are interested in learning more about the program or if you would like to speak with an advisor.
