WinECE is an organization encompassing all female undergraduate students,  graduate students and faculty within the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. This dinner traditionally brings in an illustrious scholar as a representative from academia. It’s a forum to address and interact with student members with keen interest in pursuing a career in engineering. The keynote speaker has the chance to share her own experiences with students and offer advice that they wish they would have had as a student.
