Careers & Networking
The WEP Career Connections give students an opportunity to gain engineering experience and network with engineers and recruiters in industry. Through undergraduate research (GLUE), undergraduate seminars (WEP Career Connections Seminar and WEP Leadership Seminar) and the annual WEP Evening with Industry Banquet, students gain the career connections needed to make informed career choices and the networks needed to achieve career goals.
The EXPO 101 Workshop is hosted jointly by the Equal Opportunity in Engineering (EOE) Program and the Women in Engineering Program (WEP) to prepare students for the Cockrell School’s Engineering fall EXPO (Career Fair). EXPO 101 provides students with the basics about EXPO – what to wear, what to take, how to prepare, how to behave at a career fair, etc.
Evening with Industry Meet and Greet
The annual WEP Evening with Industry Meet and Greet is a networking event hosted by the Women in Engineering Program prior to the Fall Engineering EXPO. More than 20 companies and 100 students from WEP's WISE program and other student leader programs are expected to attend each year.

Graduates Linked with Undergraduates in Engineering (GLUE)
The Graduates Linked with Undergraduates in Engineering (GLUE) program offers undergraduate students the opportunity to gain introductory, practical research experience during a short-term, mentoring experience.
Participation is limited to about 24 undergraduates, and open to all degree seeking engineering majors who have never done research. Undergraduate participants gain valuable research/work experience working with their graduate mentor on a research project for 5 hours per week and participating in a weekly seminar class meeting Tuesdays, 3:30-5pm.
WEP is partnering with the e-mentoring network for diversity in engineering and science to give students an opportunity to network with great mentors from all around the country.
