Who we are
The Women in Engineering Society is an initiative which was implemented in 2013 by female engineering students to develop and foster a supportive environment for women in engineering. WIESoc believe that supporting women throughout their university experience will play a vital role in addressing the current disparity between the female to male ratio in industry.
Major goals and achievements
- 2016 – Implemented The Protégé Program in 2016: 120 young women signed up to be a protégé in this brand-new initiative.
- 2015 – The Industry Mentoring Program was implemented in 2015. This program offers an opportunity for female students to forge a network in industry with the guidance of an industry mentor.
- Regular events: WIESoc host an array of events throughout the year such as The International Women’s Day Brunch, The Inter-University Cocktail night, The Annual Charity Ball and a variety of on-campus social events such as board game nights and BBQ’s.
