Attracting Women into Engineering (AWE)

AWE 2019 will be held on July 23 or 24, 2019 (one-day sessions) 

The Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering invites middle school girls to Attracting Women into Engineering (AWE), a program designed to expose females to the broad field of engineering. Current middle school girls, those entering the 7th, 8th and 9th grades in Fall 2019, may participate in any available one-day session during which they may work with and learn from College of Engineering faculty and students. The workshops will focus on hands-on engineering laboratory projects and will include experiments and professionalism.

This is the 20th year that the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering will offer the AWE workshops. AWE has continued to cultivate young girls’ interest in engineering through a hands-on approach to engineering, exposure to the diverse paths an engineer can take and the impact engineers will have in shaping the future.

The cost of the one-day, non-residential AWE program is $50, which includes a pizza lunch. The deadline to apply for AWE is June 1, 2019.  

There will be two sessions available in 2019.

Session 1: Tuesday, July 23, 2019
Session 2: Wednesday, July 24, 2019
