Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) Mentoring Program
The Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) Mentoring Program at the Okanagan Campus of The University of British Columbia connects industry mentors with female students in the Faculties of Engineering and the Irving K Barber School of Arts and Sciences. These links help students build satisfying and successful careers. They also enable mentors to promote their industries, network with other mentors, develop new skills, and maintain a connection with the UBC community.
The mentoring structure includes an industry mentor, a senior undergraduate student, and a junior undergraduate student. This structure means that the senior student will gain experience mentoring a junior student.
WisE aims to support the success of young women to transition from their undergraduate education to a career in science or engineering and to prepare and mentor them to remain in the sector.
