See yourself as an engineer!
We know how important it is to have faculty role models to mentor and encourage you, as well as lively peer activities to help you grow professionally and personally.
At Santa Clara we have one of the largest percentage of women engineering faculty in the United States, so you'll find lots of shining examples of success in your professors.
Outside of the classroom, organizations such as Society of Women Engineers, ACM-W (Association for Computing Machinery-Women), Women in STEM, and Engineers Without Borders offer inspiring speakers, informative workshops, and lots of opportunities for outreach, travel, networking, and social engagement.
You'll not only see yourself as an engineer, you'll become one!

Musicians and computer engineering seniors Rachel Goldstein and Andy Vainauskas have designed a device to help those of us less talented or disabled make music using our own brain activity. Pairing EEG technology with music improvisation software, they have created MindMusic, interpreting biofeedback and translating it into music.
Jamie Ferris '19, along with fellow undergraduates and graduate students, is developing the HELP Hand, a Human-centered Electric Prosthetic to be manufactured in India and given free of charge to those in need by the Jaipur Foot Foundation.
Last quarter, 39 undergraduates from bioengineering, civil, environmental and sustainable engineering, computer science and engineering, and mechanical engineering fulfilled their dreams and expanded their horizons through Study Abroad. Here, two of our students share their experiences.
Civil engineering seniors Sedona Leza, Karin Komshian, and Brianna Eremita were moved by the devastation caused by the firestorm that besieged Paradise, California, last winter. After meeting with townsfolk and studying the landscape, the team researched home design, construction techniques, and municipal strategies to minimize future loss, and will present their findings to the Paradise City Council this spring.
