WEP Wednesdays

WEP Wednesdays are fun, motivational, and educational meetings held for all of the women in engineering students once a month. Both multicultural and women 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 women 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, the girls are all able to meet and get to know each other. Sometimes there are guest speakers and seminars as well.



The Center for Engineering Outreach and Inclusion assists women and multicultural students in the pursuit of their undergraduate and graduate degrees. Our support system of faculty and staff encourages current students to become involved with our programs and student organizations.
