The IUPUI Society of Women Engineers will be hosting the third annual Introduce a Girl to Engineering and Technology Day on February 16, 2019! This fun-filled day gives 5th and 6th grade girls the chance to learn more about engineering and technology from current female students by participating in hands-on activities.
Registration is now closed. Join us again next year!
The purpose of the Women’s Engineering Network is to help female students build their network within the School of Engineering and Technology in addition to relevant professional fields. We strive to empower individuals toward academic, personal and professional success.
The student led program consists of peer mentoring that connects freshmen and sophomore students with upperclassmen peer mentors to meet with on a biweekly basis. Additionally, the program hosts monthly social events to expand the participants’ network and professional development events that provide opportunities to learn, grow, and connect with professionals in the field. These monthly events are open to all female students in the school.
Examples of past professional development events include:
- Career Fair Preparation: learn tips and tricks to stand out in September’s Career Fairs
- Funded Research Event: hear from current students, professors, and programs about their research experiences and apply for your own opportunities.
- Speed Networking with Professional Engineers
- Make Your Resume Shine: improve your resume and connect with representatives with multiple engineering and technology student organizations.
The Women's Peer Mentoring Program has been developed by female students in the School of Engineering to help freshman and sophomore female students build their network in both the school and IUPUI. It is meant to empower individuals toward academic, personal, and professional success.

Preparing Outstanding Women for Engineering Roles (POWER) Summer Camp and POWER Senior Academy at the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology, IUPUI are two ways we help women explore engineering.
POWER Camp has been happening since 2005 and is open to high school girls who will be going into 9th, 10th, and 11th grade in the fall. This week-long residential camp offers your women the opportunity to:
- Explore engineering through hands-on experiences and learn about difference engineering disciplines!
- Meet a diverse selection of professional women engineers and young college women aspiring to be engineers!
- Learn about different engineering careers!
- Build relationships with other aspiring engineers!
- Live and learn on a college campus for a week!
POWER Senior Academy has been operating since 2017 and is open to females who will be going into 12th grade in the fall and gives young women the opportunity to learn more about college, research, and what it is like to study engineering!
To receive additional details, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The WISE (Women in Science and Engineering) Wing in North Hall is an embedded community on the STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) Floor for first-year female students who are pursuing degrees in the Schools of Engineering & Technology and Science.
This community provides a Women's STEM success course allowing residents to easily connect with other female students in their major, network with faculty and staff, explore career opportunities, identify healthy behaviors, as well as enhance decision making and leadership skills. Residents are also encouraged to enroll in the STEM Summer Bridge program.
