W.E.S.T.: Women in Engineering, Science and Technology

The purpose of W.E.S.T. is to support and encourage women enrolled in math, engineering, and science and technology courses.  W.E.S.T. students enjoy peer study groups and mentoring relationships with faculty in related disciplines, and are provided useful information on careers, scholarships, and grants.

Our meetings allow students to meet with faculty in science and technology within Brookdale and connect with guest speakers who hold interesting careers in the science and technology fields.  We seek speakers who appeal to the current interests of our students.  Past speakers have included several engineers, a geologist, a veterinarian, and an architect.  In addition to speaking events, W.E.S.T. students have also visited other colleges and universities, and participated in charity events and community service.

Membership in W.E.S.T. is free. If you are interested in joining W.E.S.T., please fill out the form found here.  Then drop it off in the W.E.S.T. mailbox in the Math Division office located on the top floor of the MAS building or email it to a faculty advisor. Membership forms are also distributed to selected classes at the beginning of each fall and spring semester.
