The Georgia Tech Women in Engineering (WIE) program is dedicated to recruiting top students into engineering majors and, once enrolled, assisting them to achieve their fullest potential as engineers and leaders.

While WIE programs are designed for women, their implementation is inclusive of all students, and driven by the belief that WIE’s success is a natural result of efforts to improve the overall climate for all students.

Since 2009, Georgia Tech graduates more women engineers than any other institution in the United States.
