Women in Mechanical Engineering Mentorship Program

The Women in Mechanical Engineering Mentorship Program connects upper-class female ME students with incoming female students admitted to or interested in the ME degree.

  • Through formal one-on-one or small group meetings with your mentor, you can get answers to questions from someone who has already done it and develop connections within the department.
  • The program includes occasional (~1 or 2 each semester) optional informal meetings with the entire group to eat pizza and talk to invited guests.
  • Organization through the WME Facebook page.
  • WME members are eligible for a $1000 scholarship upon meeting the ME department’s continuation requirements and a $500 scholarship in each subsequent year of participation.
