Share Your Story

The Women in Engineering Program uses a variety of methods to share the insights and experiences of alumni and industry friends with current engineering students.

Share your story with our students. Describe your engineering experiences. What has your career path looked like? What cool, creative, innovative or unique projects or jobs have been a part of your career? Share one story, a few experiences, or your full bio!

Choose as many or as few things to share! Share with our students how you chose engineering, your advice on balancing careers and personal life, research advice, your favorite engineering experience, a story about failure in engineering, or life as an engineer!

"Top Ten" survey responses provide one way for alumni and industry to easily connect with students. Responses are compiled and posted anonymously to the WEP eCommunity, an online resource for female engineering students. Complete one or all of the surveys and share your thoughts with our students.

WISE Program Information & Application

First year students...as you finish up your first year in the Cockrell School, please accept this invitation to join our second year community of engineering women! Women In the Second year of Engineering (WISE) is a group of second year women who are interested in making new friends, exploring academic and career opportunities and developing leadership skills.
