December 16, 2011
The Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) recognized the first participant to graduate. Claudia Amaya graduated in Electrical Engineering during the Fall 2011 Commencement.
The Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) program promotes and encourages women to pursue careers in Science and Engineering. WiSE provides women the opportunity to develop skill sets through shared responsibility and independence of its board. In addition the program connects students to scholarships, networking luncheons, and professional workshops. Volunteer activities include outreach to young students at the elementary level to excite them about technical careers.
Currently 17 active participants are in the program. WiSE is actively seeking new participants. Undergraduates in science or engineering field are encouraged to join on line at: http://engineering.utep.edu/plaza/wise/wiseApplication.htm
Participants must maintain a 3.0 GPA, and be enrolled in undergraduate Science or Engineering degree program.
Though WISE promotes and encourages women to join it is not excluding others.
WISE began in 2001 as part of Model Institutions for Excellence (MIE) Program. Gabby Gandara - Director of Engineering Student Services, working with four undergraduate students - Sara Chavez (Civil Engineering), Salvador Contreras (Electrical Engineering), Claudia Amaya (Electrical Engineering), and Brenda Arellano (Metallurgical & Materials Engineering) re-energized the program through UNIV 1301.
