Lehigh's Women Engineers (LWE) is a yearlong program that encourages talented young women as they navigate the challenging transition from high school to the academic rigor of undergraduate engineering studies. Through a series of events, the P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science is working to instill a strong sense of community among our women engineers, whatever their chosen majors. Targeted primarily at undergraduates, but open to all women in engineering at Lehigh, these events support the success of Lehigh's growing cadre of women engineers as they take on leadership roles in the classroom and the workplace.
The LWE program strengthens the engagement of women engineers in the College's academic and social fabric, create professional networks with outside participants, and nurture a rich academic experience.
In addition to first-year engineering students, the program's community includes upper class mentors, graduate students and women faculty members. Lehigh's Society of Women Engineers chapter, graduate student women in science and engineering, and Lehigh ADVANCE all help promote engineering career acumen among the program's participants.
LWE is supported by the Dean's Office of the P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science and a grant from UGI, Inc.
