Women in Engineering Summer Workshop Series

Calling all future female engineers! The University of Kentucky’s Women in Engineering Summer Workshop Series is for high school women (rising sophomores, juniors and seniors, and recent high school graduates) who are considering engineering as a possible major and career. Participants in the June 2017 workshops will explore the world of engineering with UK faculty members and students through hands-on experiments in a collegiate environment. The goal of the WIE Summer Workshop Series is to provide young women with knowledge and support for their decision to pursue engineering as a course of study in college.

Participants will be exposed to various disciplines of engineering and will have the opportunity to interact with current students and faculty within the field to gain insight on their experiences and to decrease learning curves associated with pursuing a career in engineering.
