Current Events

WinECE has several signature events that occur each year. At the beginning of each semester, new and returning members are invited to attend a welcome dinner. In the fall, the keynote speaker is a woman in academia who talks about her career and research. In the spring, the speaker is usually a woman engineer or executive from industry who talks candidly about her career development, her work environment and often provides helpful tips on personal and professional success. In addition to these two events, an end of year "Garden Party" is held outside to welcome spring and celebrate the women in ECE who will soon be graduating with B.S., M.S. or Ph.D. degrees. During the year, a variety of social, professional and mentoring events are organized. These include but are not limited to mentoring events and participation in the organization of ECE Day.
