Women in Computer Science is an organization for women, by women. Any FIU student (Graduate or Undergraduate) in the School of Computing and Information Sciences, or simply with some interest in any of the various topics in computing is welcome to join us! Our mission is to create a nurturing environment that will provide academic, professional, and emotional support to female students in the field and therefore create more opportunities for women in the School of Computing and Information Sciences to succeed.
It is a statistical fact that there are not a lot of women in S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) fields. We often get discouraged pursuing technical fields because of various issues and lose out on opportunities for future career success. In these male-dominated fields, it is important for females to help inspire and encourage each other. WICS is your opportunity to do just that!
