Women in Engineering Service Award

The Women in Engineering (WIE) Program is dedicated to promoting the role of women in the field of engineering. Our focus is on the recruitment of prospective female engineering students and the retention of current undergraduate and graduate female engineering students.

The Women in Engineering Program in the Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland was established in January 1995 through a grant from the Sloan Foundation.
Core Purpose
To produce engineers who value every voice and mobilize the power of community to thrive as global citizens and fearless agents of positive change.

We invite you to stop by the WIE office any time.  We are located in Suite 1131 Glenn L. Martin Hall.  WIE has an open door policy and our staff looks forward to working with you.

Dear current, past, and future members of the WIE Community,

Without question, we are facing uncertain and rapidly changing times.  The mission of the Women in Engineering Program is to foster community and provide support to women students in engineering. Despite our current circumstance, we are remaining steadfast in our efforts to do so.  Just as we have always been, we are committed to serving as a resource, system of support, and community builder throughout this challenging time. 

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. The Women in Engineering Community is invested in and inspired by each other, and we will use this challenge as an opportunity to become even stronger, empowered, and more engaged.

We welcome your thoughts, comments, ideas, and concerns. If there is anything that the Women in Engineering Program can do to support you during this difficult time, please contact us at women_in_engineering@umd.edu

We will continue to update our website with resources, virtual events, and initiatives to help you navigate the months ahead.

Warm Regards,
The Women in Engineering Program
