Event Details

Do you dream in code? Love computers and want to tell them what to do? Ever wonder about how to deal with tons of data? Join us for our tour of the Computer Science Department at the University of Pittsburgh and meet great women mentors who are changing the world.

The CS Department covers many areas of research/teaching: AI, algorithms, databases, software engineering, systems and networks, data visualization/imaging, security/privacy, embedded systems, and natural language processing. Substantial research funding is provided by the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and other federal agencies.

Tour Your Future is a career exploration program that connects girls ages 11-16 with Pittsburgh-area institutions and gives them an opportunity to meet female professionals who work in those organizations. The program shows girls that they can find a place in science by introducing them to diverse STEM careers, from avian zoologists to accountants, software engineers to surgeons.
