Civil and Environmental Engineering at U of I

September 14, 2015

These t-shirts are for the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department’s inaugural workshop, Women Exploring Graduate Opportunities in Civil and Environmental Engineering, happening at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on September 18-19, 2015. 

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

The We Go CEE workshop is focused on encouraging women engineers to seek graduate degrees.  Junior, senior, and master’s level women students from around the U.S. and CEE’s own female students are attending the event. The seminars will be focused on preparation for graduate school, writing effective fellowship applications, mentoring, networking, entrepreneurship and developing leadership skills.

The keynote lecture, “Pathways to Success,” will be presented by CEE Alumni Dr. Sharon Wood (MS ’83, PhD ’86), Dean of Engineering at the University of Texas-Austin.  More information about the event can be found here: wego.cee.illinois.edu 

We really appreciate what the University of Illinois brings to Champaign-Urbana!
