Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day


To celebrate Engineers Week in February, WIEP, the UIC Society of Women Engineers, and company sponsors, partner to host a FREE Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day event at UIC. Prospective students are invited to spend a morning of engineering fun with us!


IGED 2021 gave attendees the opportunity to learn about our organizations and new partner, Calculated Genius, and how we can support students’ engineering journey! Also, participants had a chance to meet four of UIC’s most outstanding alumnae, who shared how they have navigated their academic and professional careers. To learn more about these inspiring young women, please check the ‘Meet our IGED 2021 UIC Alumnae Panelists!‘ section below.
