WISE is the premiere leadership development program for women enrolled in the Fulton Schools of Engineering at the Polytechnic campus.
When the organization was founded in 2009, WISE was an acronym for Women in Science and Engineering. Since then, WISE has expanded its reach to include women majoring in management and entrepreneurship programs in the college.
The WISE mission is to gather, guide and advance women pursuing careers in ST(EM)2 fields: science, technology, engineering, entrepreneurship, mathematics and management. Our goal is to prepare the next generation of female technical professionals and leaders to take on the world’s toughest problems.
We seek to equip our students with tangible skills and teach them leadership insights so that they can learn and apply those skills to achieve their potential, be catalysts for positive change, and become effective leaders in their community, wherever that may be.
