Advancing Women in Engineering

Drexel is actively working to increase diversity and leadership by preparing successful women in engineering.   National statistics show that even though women receive 20% of US PhDs, only 11% continue their careers as engineering department heads.*  At Drexel, around 28% of PhD engineering students are women, and about 19% of undergraduate engineering majors are female. The Libraries is a supportive partner in activities to advance women in engineering at Drexel.

Jay Bhatt, Liaison Librarian for Engineering, spoke at Drexel’s Society of Women Engineers (SWE) three- part speaker series this fall. During his presentation, Jay highlighted, discussed and answered questions about the core online information resources available to engineering students through the Drexel University Libraries web site. Students (both men and women) learned about important electronic book collections and developed awareness of key engineering databases to find the latest research papers about their research topics. This presentation was a part of the fall term event titled "Surviving Engineering: Introducing Drexel's Resources".

The Society of Women Engineers (SWE), [see: SWE Drexel University] founded in 1950, is a not-for-profit educational and service organization. SWE is the driving force that establishes engineering as a highly desirable career aspiration for women. SWE empowers women to succeed and advance in those aspirations and be recognized for their life-changing contributions and achievements as engineers and leaders.
