Women in Engineering

Keep the Thayer School at the forefront of engineering education for women.

When Thayer School achieved a national first in 2016—graduating a majority female undergraduate engineering class—the milestone was a confirmation of the educational approach that Thayer champions. Our hands-on, project-based curriculum deliberately levels the engineering playing field by teaching all students how to design, build, code, wire, and use tools and equipment. Team projects make room for all perspectives; lab research allows students to make real-life differences. Support for Women in Engineering provides fellowships with a preference for women and funding for female faculty and students to attend conferences and develop programs to advance women in engineering.
