Women in Engineering at UT

The college is committed to outreach and retention efforts to increase the number of female engineering students. We hope that our young women will go on to become future leaders in the engineering field in both the private sector and in academia.

Today, more than ever, women are discovering the exciting opportunities and unique challenges in the engineering field. At UT, we encourage the interest of young women in the science, engineering, technology, and math (STEM) fields through outreach, pre-college programs, and mentoring and support during their college careers.

The college is proud of the fact that the number of our female professors has increased to a total of 24, at present. The presence of accomplished women who serve as faculty members serves as inspiration for both students and for the junior female faculty who have recently joined the college.
