Women in Mechanical Engineering Mentorship Program

The Women in Mechanical Engineering Mentorship Program connects upper-level female Mechanical Engineering students with first- and second-year female students admitted to or interested in the Mechanical Engineering bachelor’s degree.

  • Through small-group meetings between mentors and mentees, you can ask questions, exchange information, and develop connections within the department.
  • The program includes occasional informal events with the entire Women in Mechanical Engineering group to meet with professional women in industry and academic, including alumni of the department.
  • Organization through the WME Facebook page.
  • WME members can be eligible for a Women in Mechanical Engineering $1000 scholarship upon meeting the degree’s progression requirements, or a $500 scholarship in each subsequent year of participation.
