Students share their perspectives
I would like to credit the female engineering professors at ASU who inspired me and my peers to feel confident in our discipline. I would like to specifically point out Dr. Lenore Dai, Dr. Jean Andino and Professor Kathleen Brewer for both the personal and professional lessons.
You belong in engineering. Have fun, speak up, challenge the status quo and lift others up. Engineering is best when you’re having fun, so join clubs, volunteer and get connected to people who are as motivated as you are.
Be open to experiences that do not directly relate to your major! Going to conferences, career fairs and ASU events can help you learn about new opportunities, build your networking skills, expand your knowledge of engineering and other fields and build valuable connections!
Student organizations in the Fulton Schools provide a network of support and resources that help women prepare for their futures in engineering.
Advancing Women in Construction
