On Friday, Nov. 1, Exploring Research: Women in Computing will be hosted at Kean University, in collaboration with NJIT. This free event has been generously funded by Google and the BRAID project.
This event will build a regional community of undergraduate women considering research careers. We hope that by attending our workshop and hearing from researchers, graduate students and faculty, more undergraduate women will consider research opportunities in computing now and in the future. Our goal for the day is to introduce students to research areas and research careers.
Benefits to students include: meeting research mentors, learning about research careers and graduate school experiences, finding out how to apply to graduate programs, free breakfast & lunch, swag, and the opportunity to join a cohort community of undergraduate researchers.
Benefits to faculty include: mentoring opportunities, speakers from academia and industry, workshops on collaboration and Affinity Research Group mentoring, free breakfast and lunch, and the opportunity to develop our next generation of researchers.
