Mission

MISSION:

While women have joined the field of computer science in increasing numbers over the past 20 years, the percentage of women in the Computer Science field continues to be low. Only twenty percent of the UCD School of Computer Science undergraduate students are female. Admittedly, the field presents each individual that enters it great challenges that are not found in traditional fields, but in return, the benefits it provides far outweigh these challenges. Nevertheless, many women students drop out of computer science and switch to less technical disciplines. We believe that some of the reasons for the high attrition rate of women in computer science are: difficulties encountered with the present curriculum, demanding family or work responsibilities, and the shortage of female role models within the faculty.

Our mission is to create more opportunities for women in the School of Computer Science in order for them to succeed and to attract additional female students to the field by creating a nurturing environment that will provide academic, professional, and emotional support.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”transparent” up=”25″ down=”0″][vc_separator type=”transparent” up=”25″ down=”0″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type=”parallax” parallax_content_width=”full_width” text_align=”center” full_screen_section_height=”no” section_height=”500″ parallax_side_padding=”0″][vc_column][vc_gallery interval=”3″ images=”18284,18285″ img_size=”full” onclick=”” enable_drag=”no”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation=”” row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”grid” angled_section=”no” text_align=”center” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern” background_color=”#ffffff” padding_top=”175″ padding_bottom=”225″][vc_column][vc_column_text]
