Wie

Wie (Woman In Engineering) – IST, is an affinity group that belongs to IEEE-IST Student Branch, based at the Alameda campus of Instituto Superior Técnico of the University of Lisbon.

This group is intended for all engineering students who are interested and want to be involved in the promotion and recognition of women in the engineering world. Our main goal is to motivate and inspire future engineers to pursue the scientific careers and interests of their dreams. We intend to fight any disparities of opportunity that may arise in the scientific community, thus promoting a diverse environment of ideas and innovative opinions. In order to fulfill our goal, Wie-IST organizes initiatives such as lectures, workshops and discussions.

Finally, we aim to create an inclusive, dynamic and dedicated community in order to promote a healthy debate and battle of ideas for the benefit of humanity and the scientific and technological community of IST.
