Texas State University College of Science and Engineering


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 and educators.

A key goal of our 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. Recent conferences included 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. We will also host 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.
