Collaboration. Diversity. Excellence.

The Center for Engineering Outreach and Inclusion assists women and multicultural students in the pursuit of their undergraduate and graduate degrees. Our support system of faculty and staff encourages current students to become involved with our programs and student organizations. Our office also provides numerous scholarships, student retention programs, recruitment efforts, and professional development opportunities to Penn State engineers. Please stop by our office in 208 Hammond Building for more information or to just introduce yourself!

The mission of the Center for Engineering Outreach and Inclusion is to be a top five national producer of women and underrepresented World Class Engineers by 2020 through recruitment, retention, professional development, and financial and academic support. We strive to dynamically lead the College of Engineering by facilitating collaboration on broad diversity issues.

Celebrate With Us!

Penn State WEP (Women in Engineering Program) and MEP (Multicultural Engineering Program) alumni are invited to celebrate three decades of success and our vision for the next decade!

Penn State College of Engineering has enjoyed a 30-year legacy of leadership and service championing career development of women and underrepresented students in engineering; this began through the establishment of the Multicultural Engineering Program (MEP) and the Women in Engineering Program (WEP) in 1986, and has grown to support 2,500+ students annually.
