A plethora a resources are available to current women engineering students. Whether you’re looking to get involved with a student org or team, conduct undergraduate research or just want to work with other engineering students, you don’t need to look far to find the next step of your student experience.

Current Students

The Women in Engineering Center has worked to build an inclusive community and support network for women in engineering since its founding in February 2015. From general events to application-based leadership programs, our Center has involvement opportunities for students at every level.

Student Organizations

There are several engineering student organizations geared specifically toward women students, as well as many College-wide student teams and organizations that encourage women to join.

Get support from someone who has been in your shoes from Mizzou Women Mentoring Women.

Join Mizzou Society of Women Engineers, an on-campus community that encourages and supports women who pursue careers in engineering.

The secret to success

One of the best ways to do well as an engineering student is to get involved — in FIGs, undergraduate research, competition teams and student orgs inside and outside of engineering.

Getting involved not only gives you résumé-boosting, hands-on experience, it provides you with a community of students who understand exactly what you’re going through, and that is invaluable.
