Welcome! We are the Women in Cybersecurity Club at Purdue University. We officially became a WiCyS student chapter in January of 2019! Our goal is to build a community within Purdue University that promotes women’s education, participation, and leadership in the field of cybersecurity. We strive to build an environment of encouragement, growth, and support for females interested in cybersecuirty or pursuing a degree in cybersecurity
We meet monthly on Wednesdays at 6:00pm! Be sure to join our GroupMe to stay up to date with any changes to the meetings and events.
One of our goals is to create a mentorship platform for high school girls who are interested in cybersecurity. We aim to create a relaxed and friendly environment that allows younger females to really get to know us and explore the idea of a future in STEM and cybersecurity (It’s a fun time!). If you are interested or know of anyone else interested in getting to know about cybersecurity and Purdue feel free to email us and we will set you up with a mentor! You can find our contact at the bottom of the page.
