On May 16th, 2018 IEEE Women in Engineering hosted an event at UI LABS in partnership with Northwestern Master of Engineering Management program and the Society of Women Engineers Chicago Regional Section.

UI LABS is a collaboration platform that brings Universities + Industries together with startups and government to define problems, design partnerships and deliver scalable solutions to accelerate the deployment of emerging digital technologies, currently focused on digital manufacturing and smart infrastructure.

The participants enjoyed an inspiring and informative presentation by Caralynn Nowinski Collens, CEO of UI LABS, on “Heart, Gut, and Brain: Forging your path.” Dr. Nowinski Collens referred back to her career path and lessons learned along the way, and offered advice to the audience on their own journeys in technical fields.

The participants also took tours of UI LABS Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute (DMDII) and enjoyed a networking session with other professionals.

IEEE WIE would like to thank Northwestern MEM program for the sponsorship.
