  • Simulation and Applied Physics
  • Mechatronics (motors, custom circuits, control systems)
  • Sensing, State Estimation, and User Interface
  • Much more!
If any of this sounds remotely interesting to you, whether it’s related to your major or something completely new, we encourage members of all experience levels to join! You can also join our mailing list (scroll to bottom), Slack workspace, or email to learn more and start contributing to this impactful project!
2022 Silicon Valley Women in Engineering (WiE) Conference
When: Saturday, March, 19th
Where: Register
The 2022 Silicon Valley Women in Engineering (WiE) Conference will be held at San Jose State University (SJSU) on Saturday, March 19, 2022.  The conference theme is “Engineering Leaders for Tomorrow.” We would like to invite you to join this full-day event, which aims to inspire the next generation of innovators with women leaders in Silicon Valley.

The 2021 WiE Conference with 450+ attendees sold out quickly. The 2022 WiE Conference promises to be another great conference. We expect to have nearly 70 speakers from Silicon Valley companies such as Google, Facebook, Cisco, TSMC, and Genentech.  The conference program includes 12 emerging technologies sessions, six professional development workshops, and five career panels. In addition, we will have an Innovation Showcase in which select Silicon Valley companies will showcase their cutting-edge technologies, and have engineers/managers on hand to interact with students.
Students may now register individually or as part of a campus group. A group rate of $30/person will be available for groups of 5 or more between now and February 28, 2022.  Please contact us directly for details. Given the strong demand for the limited number of seats, we urge you to register as soon as possible.

To secure the seats before students are identified, one can use 2022WiE as a placeholder. Once the student attendance is confirmed, one can update the eventbrite ticket. 

If you have any questions, please contact our team at:
