Engineers change the world. Literally. From designing water solutions for impoverished communities to coding programs that power innovation, engineers build solutions that make our world better. STEM careers consistently rank among the top jobs for college graduates and STEM industries continue to grow.
STEM jobs are expected to increase by 16.8 percent from 2010 to 2020, adding 1.3 million new jobs to the workplace. Missouri alone will need to fill 143,000 STEM jobs by 2018.
There has never been a better time to be an engineer, and the University of Missouri is a great choice for women in engineering. The Women in Engineering Center seeks to provide resources for prospective women students who want to change the world through engineering. We foster community among women in the College of Engineering through monthly events, and our center space serves as a gathering place for students. No matter your interests or year in school, the Women in Engineering Center has involvement opportunities for you. Visit the Prospective Students’ Programs page to learn more.
