The Center for Women in Technology (CWIT) is pleased to invite high-achieving high school students to a virtual event who are interested in pursuing technology and engineering majors for a unique glimpse at the life of a Scholar in the CWIT community and what it means to be a woman and/or an underrepresented minority in engineering and computing at UMBC.
This opportunity includes a chance for students to learn about:
- the four year scholarships through the CWIT and Cyber Scholars Programs,
- engineering and computing majors from professors and current students,
- research and internship opportunities and experiences, and
- how to be a competitive applicant in the Scholar selection process
During this event, parents will also have the opportunity to hear from the Admissions office, Financial Aid, the Honors College, parents of CWIT Scholars, and more.
This virtual conference-style event will feature eight sessions each with the choice of three presentation options. See a more detailed list of presentations below. More details about how the virtual event will happen will be sent out closer to the event.
