The College’s influence extends well beyond our campus. We are active members of our community and support the development of engineering interests in Wisconsin’s secondary schools.

Girls Who Code Club

To encourage interest by girls in computing and all of the opportunities it provides, UWM’s College of Engineering & Applied Science hosts a Girls Who Code Club during the academic year for students in grades 5-12. The program is led by computer science faculty; female instructors are UWM computer science students.
