Kate Gleason knew there was nothing she couldn’t achieve, provided she had passion and the will to succeed. Women engineers at Rochester Institute of Technology’s Kate Gleason College of Engineering share this philosophy. Inspired by our college’s namesake, they stretch conventional limits to reach their full potential. And Kate isn’t their only inspiration. The number of women faculty members within our college exceeds the national average, and women comprise 40% of the dean’s leadership staff.
Our woman engineering faculty are also engaged in research and activities related to recruitment, retention, and advancement of women students and faculty in STEM-related fields. They are recognized by national and international professional organizations for their dedication to their respective disciplines, for their research, and for their contributions to the education of the next generation of engineers.
