WIE is a support for women in engineering and computer science at Concordia University. Only 17% of students who enroll in engineering programs across Canada are women, and only 7% of registered professional engineers are women. In order to help that at Concordia University, WIE strives to help female engineering students gain academic and financial support, while encouraging their involvement in various competitive teams and social events.
In order to accomplish our goal, here is a short list of what we do:
- Host annual scholarship information sessions to provide financial support
- Host tutorials to provide academic support
- Maintain and update a database of events, which range from career fairs and tutorials, to social events
- Hold regular member meeting, and invite everyone to join us
