WiSE 2018, the largest event hosted by Women in Engineering UBC, is an amazing opportunity for women* engineering students to connect with women in industry and/or academia who have taken traditional and non-traditional paths with their science and engineering degrees that have led to exciting careers. There will be 35 mentors from different fields and 2 amazing keynote speakers.

Each student will participate in 3 rounds of discussion with mentors of their choice and will have the opportunity to take part in an additional networking session planned for the end of the evening. Students will leave having gained a new perspective and 3 mentors with career paths similar to their goals. Come join us this year, for a night aimed at forming connections and being inspired, while enjoying a delicious catered dinner.
