VP Academics
Hey! Luckily for WIE I am better at my role as VP Academics than I am at taking pictures. I am looking forward to spending my last year at Concordia with a great team. WIE have some amazing events coming up in the academic year that you will not want to miss. If you are a new engineering student and you are nervous about school or attending networking/social events don’t be shy to send me an email for advice! Now that I am in my fourth year, I consider mys elfa wise old woman. I won’t sugar coat it, engineering is hard. Don’t give up and work hard. Always remember, that if you are struggling in a class, so is everyone else. academics.wie@ecaconcordia.ca

Director CEGEPs
Hey everyone! I am Aisha, and I am your new outreach director for Cegeps. I am a third year Industrial Engineering student. I am super excited to be part of WIE this year, as I want to promote and encourage people to apply in Engineering! Growing up, I never thought I would ever apply into this field because in some way, I thought that this wasn’t for me, but I was wrong, and now I am so happy I applied because I actually really love what I am doing, and now I cannot even imagine myself in another field. I want to share my experience in Engineering with students who, like me, are hesitant in applying. For students who are already in Engineering, I highly encourage you to come to our events, and use all the opportunities to build your career through networking events. If you have any questions, or if you want to help us by volunteering you can contact me. Collegeoutreach.wie@ecaconcordia.ca
