The program has been around for a few years now and has seen nearly 80% of the graduates entering into engineering programs throughout the country, from MIT to Carnegie Mellon, Rochester Institute of Technology to Virginia Tech (go Hokies!). These bright young girls are paving the way for a new generation of engineers.
