University of Campinas, Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University

UTC Safer-Sim Sponsorship of the first Women in Construction Workshop (WCW) was held in Summer 2015. It was the first-of-a-kind event that reaches out to female students in construction and civil engineering from developing countries who show great potential of success as future teachers, mentors, and society leaders and can further motivate other female or minority students to pursue degrees in STEM disciplines especially in construction and civil engineering. The workshop was conducted in Orlando in partnership with two major universities in Brazil (University of Campinas) and China (Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University).
