A Day in the Life: Being a Woman in Electrical Engineering
Date / TimeJanuary 14, 2021 / 5:30-6:30pm
Although the numbers of women in engineering fields have increased, we are still a minority in the field, and depending on the niche field you enter after college, you could find yourself as an even greater minority. This was the case for me, with about 10% of women in my electrical engineering graduating class, to being the only woman in the TTU pulsed power laboratory working on my thesis, and very commonly one of only a handful of women in my job or at conferences. I will share my experiences as a woman (and new mom) in the engineering field as well as an overview of Sandia Labs and my area of expertise.
