OWISE (Office of Women in Science and Engineering) LogoThe Office for Women in Science and Engineering (OWISE) has a goal of creating a culture of success for women in engineering and science. Housed in the Office of the Dean, the OWISE Office and programs aim to improve the climate, increase retention and provide professional development and leadership opportunities for engineering and science faculty and students.

The OWISE Office also administers the National Science Foundation ADVANCE PAID grant for the College of Engineering and Science and its ADVANCEing Faculty Program.

Louisiana Tech University's College of Engineering & Science is now a member of the National Center for Women and Information Technology Academic Alliance.
