As part of our celebration of women in STEM this month, I am very excited to acknowledge three female faculty in the Engineering Technology programs at three of our State Colleges. These women provide positive role models for students. They walk the talk, providing mentorship and encouragement for females in their own programs as well as in all other STEM careers. Female enrollment has increased in Engineering Technology and related technical programs by 8% between 2009 and 2011; research demonstrates the importance of having women instructors in STEM coursework for female students. We are very lucky to have these three women on our Engineering Technology team in Florida!
