Women in ECE

Welcome to ECE!  Women are choosing the field of Electrical and Computer Engineering in increasing numbers to be part of the excitement of developing new technologies, especially those that impact humans and society (Benefits of ECE).

Society of Women Engineers at OSU: There is a very active OSU SWE student group at OSU that you could considering joining.

Women in Engineering Program: The OSU WIE program provides many opportunities to socialize and network with other engineering women, find mentors, and mentor others.

Outreach: Some ECE women get involved in ECE outreach to K-12 students.

Humanitarian Engineering: Quite a few women in engineering join OSU Engineers for Community Service (ECOS) to help developing communities around the world and in Columbus.  Some also join the Engineers Without Borders (EWB) group at OSU or the OSU Engineers for a Sustainable World (ESW). More information on opportunities in humanitarian engineering are available on the College of Engineering website.

Women Faculty: There are a number of women faculty in ECE, each of whom is listed below.
