    Abstract

    The introduction of a Women's Machining Course at Rowan University is discussed to encourage women in pursuing mechanical engineering programs. Most of the women who participated in the course felt increased confidence in their fabrication skills and design abilities. Most of the female engineering students expressed interest in attending a more advanced ' Rapid Prototyping' course during the Fall 2003 semester. It was suggested that course like this can help in improving gender parity in engineering education.
