Women In Science and Engineering (WISE) Home

About WISE

At William Paterson University, the women in science and engineering (WISE) program is designed for students within the College of Science and Health or those students who plan to pursue a career in science. Our WISE mission includes increasing representation of women in the sciences, but more specifically, we strive to build and support women who will take leadership positions, directing scientific fields.

One way that we support this mission is through the BD-sponsored WISE Lecture Series. Here, we invite successful women with special career paths to meet our students and give seminar talks on their work. Often, speakers also talk about their professional journeys and obstacles faced. In the past, we have hosted a variety of female scientists or women with jobs related to the advancement of science. These seminars also help students build their professional networks and get further acquainted with fellow students and university faculty and staff. In addition, WISE hosts professional development workshops that provide career preparation and guidance.
