Since 2010, Texas State University’s Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) Conference has provided opportunities for young women studying for careers in the science and engineering fields to gain insights into successful engineering, science, and career practices from experienced professionals, educators, and fellow students.
A key goal of our conference is to provide a place for women to become inspired and empowered, explore opportunities and challenges in STEM, talk with like-minded professionals, and learn what others are doing. Each year, our conference welcomes all who support women in STEM fields to share, experience, and celebrate as a community.
For our students, the conference offers a variety of sessions and workshops. Each year is new and different! Past conferences included a career panel featuring industry professionals as well as workshops for current and future educators and high school students. Undergraduate and graduate students participated in our meet and greet networking, research poster competition, career prep sessions, and toured campus research laboratories. A unique feature of WISE is the opportunity for students to apply for our WISE scholarships and event sponsor scholarships each year.
For our alumnae, our conference provides opportunities for you to return to campus and learn how female scientists and engineers at your alma mater are advancing science and engineering practice.
For our faculty and research scientists, the WISE Conference is an outstanding opportunity to learn what your colleagues around campus are doing, identify potential collaborators, and see the rich scientific resources in our college and at Texas State University.
