For the past 13 years, Beth Holloway has been working to increase the number of women in engineering at Purdue and beyond.
Holloway has seen the dearth of female engineers firsthand. Early in her career, Holloway spent nine years as a mechanical engineer; nationwide, only 6 percent of mechanical engineers are women.
Now, as director of Purdue’s Women in Engineering Program, Holloway uses her considerable insight and expertise to bring more women to Purdue’s College of Engineering — and support them through their college careers and beyond. She also supports student success in general in her role as the college’s assistant dean for undergraduate education.
