About Us


The mission of the Women's Engineering Program (WEP) is to recruit and retain women engineering and computer science students by focusing on outreach, on-campus support, and professional preparation objectives. To meet these objectives, WEP works closely with the Society of Women Engineers (SWE), Cal Poly collegiate section, recognized as one of the largest and most successful chapters in the nation. Ranked the top student section in the nation for several years in supporting a variety of programs directed at pre-college, undergraduate, and graduate students. If you have any questions or would like more information regarding any of our programs, please contact us.

WEP supports Cal Poly women engineering students through a variety of academic, leadership, and social activities. These activities help students connect to their peers while concurrently providing alumnae, faculty, and industry representatives as role models and assisting them in achieving their educational goals. Past on-campus support activities have included: scholarships, academic counseling and referrals, pre-registration counseling, big sibling program, study aids, SWE meetings, and community service.
