UK Engineering Opportunity for Female Students

The Women’s Programs & Recruitment for the University of Kentucky College of Engineering is excited to share a great event opportunity.  This summer we will be offering a series of fun and educational workshops covering a variety of engineering topics.  The program is targeted toward young women (rising sophomore – senior) who want to gain exposure to engineering through hands-on activities/projects in a collegiate environment.

There are six different workshops available and students can learn more about each one and register for a variety of dates via our website: https://www.engr.uky.edu/admissions/women-in-engineering-summer-workshop-series/

Students will attend workshops on UK’s campus throughout June and July working in engineering labs and learning from engineering faculty and graduate students so this is also a great opportunity for them to get a feel for UK!
