Columbia Engineering Women's Forum

Young women who are high school juniors and seniors with an interest in engineering and applied science are invited to join us for our annual Columbia Engineering Women’s Forum.

Columbia students come from all over the world and represent a variety of academic interests, life experiences and perspectives. With 46% of this year’s Columbia Engineering first-year class comprised of women and with over half of our student body self-identifying as students of color, we are one of the most diverse schools of engineering in the country.

At the Engineering Women’s Forum students and parents will meet renowned Columbia Engineering faculty, be introduced to Columbia’s unique approach to engineering and learn about the exciting opportunities available to female engineers at Columbia. Columbia Engineering’s dean, Mary C. Boyce, will speak at the beginning of the program.
