Women of ECE
The Women of ECE group was formed to build a sense of community and share relevant information for women at all levels (students, postdocs, faculty) in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell.
There are many initiatives to support women in Engineering at Cornell, including travel funds, WISE (Women in Science and Engineering), SWE (Society of Women Engineers), WiE (Women in Engineering), and WICC (Women in Computing at Cornell).
Women of ECE hosts coffee/pizza hours for women in ECE, MAE and AEP, luncheons for faculty women in Engineering and various funding opportunities.
Since January 2018, each month we celebrate an outstanding woman in ECE (undergraduate, graduate, postdoc, or faculty). If you would like to nominate someone, please do not hesitate to reach out.
The undergraduate women of ECE/MAE/AEP have created a slack channel. If you would like to join, please reach out to Prof. Petersen so she can connect you to the right people. If you would like to propose an event for women in ECE/MAE/AEP, please fill out this form and send it to Hadaskg and Kirstin @ cornell.edu.
ECE Women Advance Gender Equity in ECE
Cornell ECE’s undergraduate gender ratio is trending upward—35% women in 2017 versus just 13% in 2012. That’s more than twice the national average, according to the American Society for Engineering Education.
