ENG 194: Women in Engineering Seminar

ENG 194 is a 1 credit hour, 1 weekly meeting seminar course for anyone in engineering. The class is only offered in the fall semester on Thursdays (10:30-11:20am or 1:30-2:20pm). If you would like to network with guest speakers over lunch, talk to your academic advisor about keeping your class schedule free from 11:30am-1:20pm. Lunch with seminar speakers for approximately 8-10 students is funded by the Women in Engineering Program each week. 

First year students can choose to take this one-credit course which utilizes dynamic alumnae to inspire, motivate, and reinforce the students' career choices. Students hear presentations from a variety of engineering alumnae who talk about their career choices, their daily routines on the job, and their challenges and successes in their professions as well as in their personal lives. Speakers range from recent graduates to well established corporate executives. The seminar speakers act as energizing role models, and through a series of lunches with the speakers and small group discussions, students learn networking skills. 

This class will help you get answers to many questions - questions that don't get answered in calculus or chemistry or physics. This is a class where you hear it "like it is" from women who have graduated from Purdue and are working in various women who have graduated from Purdue and are working in various engineering areas. These exceptional alumni come back to talk to you because they care. By sharing their experiences with you, they can provide an additional dimension to your college education. Additionally, this course provides the support of being in a class with many other women who have the same questions that you have.
