WiE Welcome to Admitted SEAS Students
Congratulations on being admitted to the GW School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS)! We are looking forward to getting to know you.
As director of the SEAS Center for Women in Engineering (WiE), I wanted to share with you some resources, information about our activities, and ways that you can get involved.
Dr. Shelly Heller
Director, GW SEAS Center for Women in Engineering (WiE)
The Center, which welcomes ALL SEAS members, was formed with the goal of empowering GW/SEAS students, faculty, staff, and alumni to become the best engineers they can be. We work to build confidence and knowledge about technology, expand leadership and tech skills, and fully leverage technology in support of academic and professional excellence. I am proud to say that our programming outcomes indicate we are keeping true to our goals and achieving them, bit by bit.
The Center keeps students up to date on upcoming events, student and faculty presentations and panels, links to resources, internship/job opportunities, and through a monthly newsletter. As students look to the future, WiE can help with mentoring, learning and networking events, and career planning. See below for more details.
Is the center for everyone? YES! We are here to support all of our students.

Highlighting Interesting Engineering Projects
Learn about important research and engineering projects as GW faculty, students and alumni tap into their creativity and push to new frontiers. A few examples:
Assoc. Prof. Erica Gralla turned to Minecraft to build an airplane supply chain lab.
Aylin Caliskan and Akshat Pandey worked on a study of Uber and Lyft algorithms which charged users more for trips to non-white neighborhoods.
Showcasing Role Models
Across disciplines, GW engineers are showing how it's done, as they inspire new students to excel.
Here are just a few of the extraordinary GW Engineers that we celebrate every day.
Tools, Mentoring and Resources for Career Choices
Working with the GW SEAS Career Center and WiE mentors, WiE offers videos, webinars and resources for engineers to succeed in choosing and pursuing a career.
