Women in Materials Science (WIMS)

Women in Materials Science (WIMS) is a graduate student organization in the Materials Science and Engineering department at Texas A&M that is advised by Dr. Sukhishvili. WIMS is currently led by Hanna Hlushko (president), Mengying Liu (vice president), and officers Raman Hlushko, Alexa Easley, Ciera Cipriani, Jordan Brito, and Yash Karanth.

The mission of our organization is to encourage the younger generation to pursue studies in materials science and careers in STEM fields while promoting a welcoming community atmosphere among students and faculty. To obtain our goal, we participate in outreach activities targeted at younger students with the hopes that providing them first-hand experience doing scientific experiments will kindle their interest in science. We also encourage members to build a network with professionals in STEM fields by organizing on-site visits at leading companies and hosting lunch and learn seminars with industrial experts and professors from academia.
