UTS Women in Engineering and IT (WiEIT) Program is a long-standing initiative designed to address the underrepresentation of women in engineering and IT through inspiration, education and empowerment - constructing engineering and IT as potential options for study and career.

Our activities promote connection and engagement for female students at all levels, and encourage networking and collaboration with engineering and IT professionals and thought-leaders in gender diversity and innovation. The WiEIT Program also seeks to address attitudes and behaviours which may undermine a safe and rewarding learning, research and working environment for students and staff.

Our aims

  • Engage female high school students with engineering and IT


  • Support current students with mentoring, social and volunteering opportunities
  • Prepare students for graduate roles, success and continuity in their chosen field
