Women in Engineering Breakfast at ECCE 2018

Join us for the next WIE Breakfast, where our speakers are prominent women in power electronics and engineering. Over breakfast, we listen to dynamic women share their career challenges and triumphs, and invite discussion on relevant topics. The WIE Breakfast is open to all who support our efforts in providing mentorship to women in engineering, and is free of charge.

Internationalization has become a buzz word in many ways. Academics are expected to make themselves at home internationally. In this talk, I would like to share with you my own years of experience living internationally and how this has impacted my career, my thinking, and my day to day challenges as a professor.
