SMU Women in Tech is an inclusive community that promotes gender diversity in technology, with an emphasis on female representation and empowerment in the field. We support our members in pursuing their aspirations in the tech industry through three pillars: Education, Empowerment and Community.

The WiT community (i.e. members of WiT) can expect initiatives aimed at technical upskilling, community-building as well as personal and professional development, with the aim of bridging the gap in access to resources between the student tech community and corporations. We’re partnering with prominent companies from various industries to offer enriching programs to the WiT community, so join us to receive exclusive updates and priority sign-ups – don’t say bojio!


Major events offered by WiT include, but are not limited to:

  1. Women in Tech® panels

  2. Technical workshops for in-demand technologies
    In partnership with our industry partners, SMUWiT will bring technologies, skills and topics that outside the curriculum as means of exploratory exposure for students.
  3. Technological challenges and Hackathons

  4. Networking with seniors and industry partners

"Seems like a nice inclusive group and not is as intimidating to join as compared to other tech ccas, especially for a yr 1."

- Clara Aw Juan Qi SCIS Y1

"Considering how Tech is a male-dominated environment, it would be nice to be able to network with other women and learn more about Tech and the opportunities available :)!"

- Toh Siao Suen Isa SOA Y2


No, WiT is committed to the mission of promoting diversity in tech. Therefore, students of all genders and majors are welcome to join us as members and be part of the movement.

Simply join our Telegram group (@smuwit) and follow us on Instagram/LinkedIn! Being a newly founded student organization, we are expanding our community within SMU and membership will be open to all (did we mention it’s also free?).

Great news! WiT is offering several programs in collaboration with industry partners.
