Women in Engineering


Acadia welcomes a strong community of women in science and engineering with many opportunities for them to get involved, whether it's within the engineering department with Ms Engineering (Mentor in the School of Engineering), or through WISE (Women In Science and Engineering) with students from several faculties. Connect with your fellow engineering students through Ms Engineering or with WISE!

Ms Engineering (Mentor in the School of Engineering) is an informal mentoring and social group for women engineering students at Acadia, where incoming first-year students are grouped with upper-level students to help make the transition to university life and the Engineering program more enjoyable. Students are invited to participate in or help organize events throughout the year, including skills-building and guest speaker sessions, socials, and other ideas that students suggest. There is an elected MS Engineering representative on the Acadia Engineering Society as well. If you would like more information or to be involved, please email Dr. Jennie Rand, Professor in the School of Engineering and coordinator of Ms Engineering, jennie.rand@acadiau.ca.

Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) Acadia is a group of faculty, staff, and students dedicated to supporting and empowering girls and women who are interested or engaged in science or engineering related careers. To see more information about WISE click here.
