A student group called POWE (Promoting Opportunities for Women in Engineering) joined forces recently with Faculty career counsellors to hold the third annual Women in Engineering Speed-Networking event.

Twenty professional women were on hand to help students explore career paths and discuss transitioning from the classroom to the workplace.

POWE exists to increase awareness about the many contributions women have made to engineering and to encourage more women to enter the profession.
