Women in engineering
Empowering women to thrive in STEM
is critical to the future of engineering and technology.
The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering is committed to balancing the STEM population with the general population. Numerous programs and organizations in the Fulton Schools aim to increase gender diversity in science and engineering, led by women who have found their passion in various engineering fields and are now helping others pursue these rewarding career paths.
AWIC aims to support the recruitment, retention, and ultimately, the job placement of strong, qualified females from the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment’s Del E. Webb School of Construction (DEWSC) or the construction engineering programs at ASU.
Phi Sigma Rho is a social sorority dedicated to encourage women in technical studies to flourish both in their academic and social endeavors. We wish to create a community in which women challenge and encourage each other.
The goal of the SWE is to stimulate women to achieve their full potential in careers as engineers and leaders, expand the image of the engineering profession as a positive force in improving the quality of life, and demonstrate the value of diversity.
WiCS is an organization dedicated to promoting diversity in engineering, particularly females in computing. WiCS acts as a support network and resource for women in technology by providing many social, academic, professional development, community outreach, and networking opportunities.
NSBE’s mission is “to increase the number of culturally responsible black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community.” We are committed to undergraduate and graduate students in academic programs of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
SHPE de ASU brings a sense of community to the Hispanic engineering students at Arizona State. We seek to increase the number of Hispanics graduating with STEM degrees. We provide a network system which encourages students to persist and become role models.
