Women in Technology

The focus of our organization is to support women in the fields of Computer Science, Engineering and Information Technology. We provide this support by giving students access to mentoring services and opportunities to collaborate with faculty and contribute to the community at large.

Through hands-on learning, every WiT member will build on their professional development, learn technical interview skills, programming and hardware/software concepts, software development methodologies, contribute to an open source project, build interpersonal skills, and much more.
