The College of Engineering and WIEP are committed to working with local elementary schools and high schools to promote engineering and computer science to girls. Strengthening our partnerships with these institutions, community groups, and corporations will certainly help us cultivate the next generation of female engineers and computer scientists! To learn more about these efforts, please consider the following:

Partner with us!

We truly value the partnerships that we have formed with local elementary and high schools and we are certainly interested in forging more relationships with other local institutions that have similar interests and goals as WIEP, such as websites and computer programming. To establish a partnership, we welcome the opportunity to visit your institution for Career Day, College Fairs, or simply conduct a class or presentation about UIC College of Engineering and WIEP opportunities.
