Introductory Post

I am a current Women in Engineering director for the University of Waterloo. I am studying Mechatronics Engineering and I am currently in 3rd year.

At the University of Waterloo the Undergraduate enrollment in Engineering is only about 16%. The percentage of women varies between programs with some programs as high as 50% and others as low as 3%.

In my class of approximately 100 students, there are only 7 women (Which means this picture from last year's Engineering Semi-Formal shows 43% of the women in my class!)

I am planning to blog about the experiences of undergraduate women in engineering with the hope of broadening the perceptions of engineering as a profession.
