The Women in Engineering Program is here to support you. We want you to succeed, and to share your knowledge with fellow students who come after you. Here are a host of programs designed to give you the necessary connections and help that will support you in getting your engineering degree.
Current Student Programs
WIE Connect – This program matches first year students with upperclassmen in a mentoring relationship. It gives first year students the opportunity to have a guide to help them through their first year, and upperclassmen the opportunity to help a new student find their way in their first year at MSU. Participating students will have the opportunity to meet regularly as a large group as well to form relationships with other mentoring pairs.

WIE Opportunities for Involvement – We know high school students and incoming students have lots of questions and concerns. You may have benefited from the advice of other students when you started, so now is your chance to give back. We are always in need of volunteers to assist with our Pre-College initiatives such as WOW That's Engineering, MSU Girl Scout day, Email Buddies, and the Summer Women in Engineering Residential Program. If you are interested in learning more about these programs or registering to assist WIE, please contact Teresa Vandersloot at email@example.com or Geralynn Phelps at firstname.lastname@example.org
