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.
If you are looking for information about Exploring Engineering at the University of Maryland (E2@UMD), eMpower Tools, and Engineers' Night Out (ENO), please know that they are currently suspended through summer 2021. We are eager to host in-person programs as soon as it is safe to do so.
For the safety of our community, WIE programs through summer 2021 will be virtual.
WIE Change the World: An Introduction to Engineering
This virtual program is geared toward high school-aged women 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.
How Can Data Predict What is Next?
Are you interested in how data can predict "what's next", create compelling arguments, or guide our actions and decisions? Then this summer experience might be for you! Data science demonstrates how we use data to characterize, visualize, and operationalize our decision-making processes . Modeling and analyzing data form the foundation of policies you are affected by, public planning you interact with, how economies operate, and more.How Can Data Predict What is Next?
RISE Research Summer Program
This research program, organized and led by current UMD students, is an introduction to engineering research and is geared toward female high school students. Students will participate in experiments that correspond to different engineering disciplines each day of the week and learn about research labs at UMD.RISE Research Summer Program
