All COEIT students are welcome to join the CWIT community as a CWIT Affiliate or Cyber Affiliate
As an active part of the CWIT community you will:
- meet like-minded women who are interested in creating and using technology to make a BIG difference in the world
- get good, practical, helpful advice from upper class students in your major about classes and getting involved
- be presented with opportunities to meet and network with women working in engineering and IT and hear their stories
- be encouraged to develop your leadership skills through service and student organizations
CWIT Affiliates: New and returning students can become a part of our community at any time of the year by filling out a quick form.
Peer Mentoring: New women entering all of the majors in the College of Engineering and Information technology can request a peer mentor (a BigWIT as we call them) in their major. Returning students are encouraged to volunteer to be a mentor to a new freshman or transfer student (or LilWIT).
Women in Technology Series: CWIT sponsors a number of professional development events each semester that are open to all. These events are feature industry speakers and representatives and are organized in collaboration with student organizations in the college such as the Society of Women Engineers, the CWIT Student Council and various Councils of Majors.
Living Learning Community (LLC): Provides opportunities for students majoring in an computing or engineering discipline to bond with other students in the same field and create lasting support networks.
