Overview

The Women in STEM Education (WiSE) Program supports the career development of women studying in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) at Western Sydney University. The program aims to improve the representation and retention of women in these sectors by equipping students with valuable knowledge and skills throughout their career journey.

The WiSE Program (launched as Women in Science and Engineering in 2015) is unique. The program connects current students with their peers, alumni and employers and empowers them to enhance their professional skills and networks through a broad range of activities and events.

Students can learn about the opportunities their degree offers, gain access to career advice, connect with professionals in the industry, attend conferences and workshops, apply for mentoring opportunities, receive job alerts, have business cards printed and more.
