SCE places great importance on the advancement of women in academia, particularly in the fields of sciences and engineering, and is very active in its effort to promote women in these segments.
The college has defined an objective for itself to increase the number of women choosing to pursue engineering fields, both as students and as faculty members. SCE is proud of the fact that the number of female students and faculty members at the college is greater than their relative number in other comparable academic institutions. The percentage of women employed as lecturers currently stands at 36%.
In addition, SCE invests resources towards the promotion of female students in engineering, with special focus on the departments in which the representation of women is normally lower, such as electronics and electrical engineering, civil engineering and mechanical engineering. The activities in this regard include support, scholarships and personal empowerment.
