2013 Women in Science and Engineering Conference
"Sustainability: Preparing for the Long Haul"
November 21-22, 2013
Texas State University College of Science and Engineering
Texas State University’s 4th Annual Women in Science and Engineering Conference will convene on November 21-22, 2013. This event provides 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 and educators.
A key goal of the conference is to provide a place for women to explore options and challenges, talk with like-minded professionals, learn what others are doing, and become inspired and empowered to make a difference. Program highlights include panel discussions and career development sessions and opportunities to explore through laboratory tours, research poster sessions, and student scholarship awards.
Meet up with WISE!
For our students, the conference offers a variety of sessions and workshops. This year, we will host a career panel featuring industry professionals as well as a workshop for current and future educators. Undergraduate and graduate students can participate in our research poster competition, meet and network, tour our campus research laboratories, as well as apply for scholarships awarded by our event sponsors. Graduate recruiters from Texas A&M Corpus Christi and Texas State will be available to answer your questions about graduate school programs and admission. We will also have a special program for high school students who look forward to meeting our Texas State women in STEM!
For our alumnae, this annual event provides opportunities for you to return to campus, visit our campus research laboratories, 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 right here on campus.
