Encourage and Engage Women in Engineering (EEWIE), sponsored by the Engineering Information Foundation, is a multi-component program designed to increase the number of female students interested in engineering, persisting in engineering prerequisite courses and transferring to a baccalaureate degree in engineering.

Tools for Engineering expands the academic support services to female students in courses essential for transfer to further education in an engineering field by developing and implementing interdisciplinary enrichment and reinforcement workshops in mathematics and physics.

Focus on Engineering is a multi-level peer mentoring program. Cal Poly Pomona and CSULA engineering students mentor Citrus women interested in transferring with a major in engineering, while Citrus female students mentor young girls enrolled in K-12.

Links to Engineering connects Citrus College to four-year universities and industry. It has two main parts:

  • presentations and seminars held by engineering faculty, and advanced undergraduate students from CSUF and Cal Poly, and
  • field trips to Engineering Departments and Laboratories at Cal Poly Pomona, as well as to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the Marshall Space Flight Center.
Yu-han and Johanna Yu-Han Chiang and Johanna Jamison receive their winner awards of the 2012 CIE-USA/SOCAL 2nd Annual STEM Presentation and Poster Contest Seminar during the Award Ceremony on Sunday, October 28, 2012.
Yu-han, Phoebe, Jo The Rocket Owls were accepted to participate in the NASA 2013 University Student Launch Initiative Competition. Three of the team members are our own Women in Engineering: Yu-han, Phoebe, and Jo (from left to right). Congratulations to the whole team and good luck!
