Outreach Activities

How does UBC reach out to the women engineers of tomorrow?

Between 2011 and 2015, UBC outreach and recruitment efforts reached out to almost 15,000 girls between the ages of 13 and 18 through school workshops, after-school clubs, on-campus camps and outreach camps.
UBC operates and funds three distinct outreach programs — Geering Up, eng•cite and Women in Engineering Student Groups — dedicated to promoting the engineering field to girls, and those who influence their educational decisions. Together, these initiatives reach children, high schoolers, parents, teachers, guidance counsellors and industry decision-makers.
