Welcome to the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society Women in Engineering (WIE) Webpage

The IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society recruits and seeks ways to promote the careers of female electrical engineers within SSCS and across IEEE.

The Society is proud and honored  to  have been a cosponsor this year of the High-Tech High Heels Physics Advanced Placement summer camp  program for high school juniors considering careers in science, technology, engineering and math.


High Tech Heels Executive Director Wanda Gass
(back row, right, with summer students), will lead
a live on-line Facebook chat on October 18 from 11:00-12:00
Eastern Daylight Time  on closing the gender gap in engineering.
