Women in Engineering hosts opportunities for middle and high school students to be inspired and explore engineering as a potential career. Programs provide the chance to build new friendships, boost confidence, and foster a sense of community.
WIE programs through summer 2022 will be virtual.
WIE Change the World: An Introduction to Engineering
This virtual program is geared toward high school-aged women, but open to all, who are considering majoring in engineering and potentially pursuing it as a career. This week-long virtual program will introduce participants to the various disciplines of engineering through engaging lessons and lectures, hands-on activities, and conversations with faculty, staff, and students in the Clark School of Engineering.
RISE Research Summer Program
This research program, organized and led by current Maryland Engineering students, is an introduction to engineering research.
