Are you interested in the success of women in the Purdue Polytechnic Institute? If so, you have the opportunity to apply for participation in the Women in Technology learning community. You will take TECH 10100, a one-credit hour course that explores gender communication, values, challenges, and successes of women working in technology-related fields, which will help jump-start your technology career. Programs include presentations by successful women in technology fields, opportunities for exploring the kinds of corporations with the best environments for women, and discussion issues pertinent to women in technology. This learning community is a great way for you to build friendships and study groups. Many of these students will have similar interests and provide you with contacts to carry with you as an undergraduate student and beyond. It is possible to participate in this learning community in combination with another Purdue Polytechnic Institute learning community. Please see the various Purdue Polytechnic Institute learning communities.
