Women in Engineering Summer Program (WIESP)

The Women in Engineering Summer Program (WIESP), sponsored by Knowles Corporation, Motorola Solutions, and the National Science Foundation, is a free, 3-week, non-residential program that offers high school students an unparalleled opportunity to learn more about engineering through hands-on projects and corporate partner visits. Participants will also have an opportunity to work with world-renowned professors, meet COE students, make new friends, and earn a stipend upon successful completion of the program!

WIESP 2024 application has officially closed!


Overall, I think WIESP is an amazing program that encourages women to try engineering and bring more awareness to others… I would suggest that anyone who has the slightest interest in engineering should try WIESP because they will walk away with a valuable experience!
