There is a huge misconception that architects and architectural engineers do the same thing. In short, an architect creates a building design, and an architectural engineer makes it work. Lauren Boyle talks about her experiences as an architectural engineer.
In 1893, Bertha Lamme became the country’s first female engineer when she took a job at Westinghouse Electric Corporation.
Recent studies show that undergraduate students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, queer, intersex, asexual+ (LGBTQIA+) experience a similar “chilly” climate in engineering as women do. While there is limited research on LGBTQIA+ students’ engineering undergraduate experiences, SWE is collaborating with Dr. Chrystal A. S. Smith, a University of Connecticut researcher, to better understand these experiences.
