Women student studying in KEC

The purpose of the Office of Women and Minorities in Engineering (WME) is to encourage women and minority students to join the promising field of engineering. Historically, engineering has gained the reputation of an un-diverse field. We are here to change that and to bring a new, fresher face to engineering.

The Office of Women and Minorities in Engineering (WME) at Oregon State University is dedicated to motivating and inspiring women and minority student populations to pursue careers in the Engineering field. WME is here to help you find scholarships, undergraduate research opportunities, internships and ultimately to support women and minority students in any way possible. WME supports multiple student organizations and develops programming to help first-year students successfully transition into Oregon State University. The Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) offers support to underrepresented, minority students in science and engineering fields. Find out ways to get involved and supported by WME!
