Industry

Our Scholars and Affiliates benefit tremendously from meaningful and ongoing interactions with industry professionals working in many different technology sectors and roles. We are especially interested in creating opportunities for our students to meet and learn from successful women and members of other underrepresented groups working in engineering and computing positions.

Opportunities

There are a variety of ways for organizations and individuals to support and connect with the CWIT community; you can read more about the opportunities to engage with us HERE
