About WE

Women in Engineering (WE) is a program offered through Texas A&M University's College of Engineering. WE brings together communities of women for the supportive and development of undergraduate students, graduate students and faculty. 

Vision: The WE vision for inclusion goes beyond an immediate increase in the number of students as WE incorporates inclusive practices throughout our college to elicit meaningful and lasting changes in the engineering culture and workplace as a whole.

WE brings together communities of women for the support and development of: 

  • Student organizations
  • Faculty
  • Former students
  • MAGNETS
  • Non-traditional majors

History of Aggie Women

 

An Introduction by Barbara Finlay and Pamela R. Matthews

Shortly before the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas opened in 1876, a Texas legislative delegation sent to inspect the new college reported that the school was “intended for all.” Making visible the hidden stories of women and their contributions to A&M—and, equally importantly, creating a fuller and more accurate history of our institution—are the goals of this exhibit. Recent scholarship in women’s history has shown that although women everywhere have contributed much more than we have known, the stories of women’s accomplishments need to be told more adequately. Read More
