Women in Materials Science (WIMS) is a student organization in the Materials Science and Engineering department at Texas A&M that is advised by Dr. Sukhishvili. WIMS is currently led by Jordan Brito (president) and Ciera Cipriani (vice president). Our officers include treasurer Ozge Kaynan, reporter Rebeca Gurrola, internal secretary Olivia Esmacher, external secretary Galilea Puente, and ambassadors Isabella Alvarado and Kaleigh Curtis.
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.
