Women In Engineering
Abstract There has been a major effort in the past few years to provide more emphasis on STEM related careers, especially in terms of women entering STEM fields. It is far beyond time to break this mold, this myth about what a woman can and cannot hope to achieve! The only true limits are those women wish to place on themselves, not the untrue limits impressed on them in their youth. It has been gratifying to see positive results from such efforts, with many more young women entering the classes previously believed to be reserved for men. Acceptance in the field is the next barrier, but it too will be overcome. This paper will examine some of the efforts being made in industry and education to achieve a greater number of women in engineering for a lifetime career and discuss some women who have been instrumental in getting more women into engineering careers.
