The Women in Engineering Program invites you to apply to participate in a diverse community of first-year engineering students living in the new Meredith South Hall. This community makes it easy to find others in your classes to study with and hang out with. Most resident assistants for the floors are upper class engineering students who are full of advice and support. This low-key community allows you to get easily involved in other Women in Engineering Program activities and other related learning communities. This learning community is all about interest in the success of women in the various fields of engineering - all students regardless of gender are welcome and encouraged to apply.

College of Engineering students are encouraged to apply for combining participation in this learning community with other College of Engineering learning communities; please see individual learning community profiles in the College of Engineering for eligibility requirements.  

Those participating in Women in Engineering will also have an exclusive opportunity to participate in The Data Mine seminar to learn about data analytics and the role it plays in our everyday lives.  You may indicate on your application if you would like to be considered for this option.
