Women in Engineering at Tufts
Intimate in size yet vast in opportunity, our diverse and supportive environment challenges female engineers to take the helm.
Our all-female team of undergraduate mechanical engineers Briana Bouchard, Diana Burns, and Claire Rogers were named finalists in Tufts $100K Business Plan Competition for developing a streamlined and painless way to secure IVs in pediatric patients. Sophomore Danielle Feerst created an iOS application designed to help higher functioning autistic individuals with their communication and presentation skills. Chemical engineer and professor, Ayse Asatakein engineers for sustainability by creating a new, more efficient class of membranes for water treatment and chemical separation.
Leaders in the creation of new knowledge and technologies, come meet our female engineers this fall at Women in Engineering (WIE).
WIE will be held on Friday, September 26, 2014. Please sign up here.
