About Women in Engineering

We have incorporated WiE into UConn’s Open Houses. We believe this change in venue will allow young women interested in Engineering at UConn to get a more comprehensive view of what the School of Engineering offers. At Open House, students and families can register for academic and laboratory tours, explore various extracurricular activities, and meet and speak with advisors, faculty, and current undergraduate students.

Students and families can register for the General UConn Open House here: https://admissions.uconn.edu/open-house

After registering for the general UConn Open House, please take a moment to register for your major-specific tour using this link: https://admissions.uconn.edu/open-house/engineering.

Thank you for your continued interest in and support for our programs. We look forward to connecting with future engineers at Open House!
