The objective of the Women in Engineering Division (WIED) of the American Society for Engineering Education is to study, promote and improve the role of women in the professions of engineering and engineering technology through collection of data, publications, presentations at appropriate meetings, sponsorship of conferences, and similar activities. We welcome male and female members with interest in promoting these goals.
This division works to increase the participation of women at all levels of engineering education and the profession. The division is concerned with programs to improve preparation, recruitment and retention of women students at undergraduate and graduate levels in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, (STEM) fields, with the need to increase the number of women STEM faculty, and with the re-entry of women into the profession. The division sponsors sessions at the ASEE Annual Conference and administers the WIED Awards.
