Women & Engineering

An umbrella and omnibus organization, W&E connects and supports students and alumnae by hosting myriad events, including networking opportunities with the goal of establishing a community for students and alumnae and enhancing the resources WashU offers them. It also works with and helps support student-led groups populated with women: the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), Women in Computer Science (WiCS), the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) and Alpha Omega Epsilon (AΩE), an international technical science and engineering sorority for women.
