WITS & Student Societies

WITS is proud to have the support of various student society members across colleges in Ireland. Below is info on just a few!

Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Manufacturing, and Design - STEM2D
(University Limerick)

This society was created by students, for students, and aims to empower and support female students studying subjects within STEM2D disciplines - a typically male-dominated industry. We recognise the power of diversity and wish to foster an open and inclusive culture in STEM2D. Membership is open to all, regardless of gender - Everyone is welcome!

We encourage an inclusive environment by providing girls with enhanced opportunities to grow as professionals, leaders and individuals and by driving the attraction, development and retention of talented women within STEM2D. We offer fun social events, industrial site tours, information nights with guest speakers, study groups, networking events, secondary school visits and many more exciting opportunities to our members.
