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!
