Women in Engineering and Technology
Getting involved in IT & Cybersecurity can be a life changing experience. It provides a wonderful opportunity for women to empower themselves through tackling new challenges, gaining essential work skills, participating in creative problem solving, and joining in leadership opportunities. The unique perspective women can contribute to technical fields is needed, and is in high demand by both employers and educators. This demand provides a powerful opportunity for women to get involved and influence the world around them.
If you are curious about whether IT or Cybersecurity is a good fit for you, please feel free to contact
Amanda Hughes, current female students, or the
BYU Women in Engineering & Technology (WE) group who provides research scholarships for freshmen and sophomore students. Know that your voice will always be heard here!

The BYU Domains program provides professors and students the tools they need to have a presence on the web and to take control of their digital identity. BYU students and faculty are given one free domain name to construct and use in their own manner, with tutorials and documentation to help them along the way.
