Women in Computer Science

About us

Our Women in Computer Science (WiCS) group was established to promote women pursuing degrees and careers in Computer Science. We provide support for one another and engage in various activities such as:

  • Professional Workshops (eg. Interview Prep, Resume, Networking Workshops)
  • Technical Workshops
  • Community Outreach Programs
  • Social Gatherings (dinner & movie nights, informal gatherings, study groups, study breaks, etc.)
  • Educational Events (research opportunities, graduate school information, internships information, Mentoring Program, other informational sessions)

Come out and get to know other students, faculty, company representatives, and alumni! Learn from the experiences of others and get ahead. Although our focus is on women in computing, everyone is welcome to join us!

mentee/mentor program

The Women in Computer Science Mentorship Program facilitates and fosters a partnership meant to instill guidance, support, and confidence through one’s pursuit of their Computer Science degree. The mentor is an undergraduate or graduate main campus student in the Computer Science department who is taking or passed Data Structures. As a mentor, you should be a guide, resource, and support contact for your mentee. The mentee is an undergraduate main campus student in the Computer Science department who is not currently taking or has not passed Data Structures. Mentorships last for one semester, with an option to continue the mentorship in following semesters.
