WEP Wednesdays

Penn State College of Engineering is committed to providing access to programs and opportunities to all qualified students without regard to race, color, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability or protected veteran status.

WEP Wednesdays are fun, motivational, and educational meetings held for all engineering students once a month. All student engineers may participate in the meetings. The meetings are directed by Cheryl Knobloch, WEP’s Associate Director. A typical WEP Wednesday would include dinner for all, and afterward, there are student and guest speakers that talk about engineering topics of interest.

For example, a panel of upper-class student engineers may discuss their experiences with career fairs, interviews, co-ops, or and internships. This allows students to have their questions concerning these topics answered and at the same time, students are all able to meet and get to know each other. Sometimes there are guest speakers and seminars as well.



Founded to serve students from groups underrepresented in engineering, the Center for Engineering Outreach and Inclusion assists College of Engineering students, faculty, and staff with equity and inclusion engagement. The center leads the implementation of evidence-based best practices to support student belonging and degree attainment, while also encouraging involvement with justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion programs and organizations. All are welcome!
