ENGR 194: Women in Engineering Seminar

First year students can choose to take this one-credit course which utilizes dynamic alumnae to inspire, motivate, and reinforce 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.
