Women in Computer Science supports and encourages women in technology! We host a variety of events throughout the year with our amazing sponsors to promote women in technology.
Women in Computer Science at St. Andrews was created at the end of the 2017-18 academic year. It was created to promote and encourage fellow women in technology. STEM subjects, in general, are studied predominantly by men. We want to overcome the many reasons why there are less women in Computer Science and STEM subjects, and we want to advance this idea to anyone interested – regardless of identification or the level of computer science background one has. Our goal is to create a strong, female support system within Computer Science at St. Andrews through events such as mentorship programs, coding workshops, and many other female-led activities.
We hope that our society will raise awareness of gender bias and begin dialogue about how each of us can help tackle this discrimination that exists in technology. Both women and men need to work together to solve this issue. Therefore, we invite and urge men to join our society as well and learn about what they can do to assist their fellow women in computer science.
Our members are able to learn from, network with, and be the first to hear about internship and job opportunities through the amazing companies that work with and sponsor WICS. By working with these companies, we hope to offer as many resources (and as much pizza!) as we can to assist our members in achieving their goals in technology.
Join WICS, the largest STEM society at St. Andrews, for only £3 (for the whole academic year!) and help us change the mindset of women in technology. Together, we can empower more women in computer science!
We are here solely for students of the University of St Andrews. We exist to make the student experience as strong as it can be, to provide services for students, and to represent student views to the University and beyond. We are a charity registered in Scotland and we are mostly volunteers, from members of the SRC and SSC to Ents Crew, all the society committee members to the Trustees of our Board.
