Smith College launched its Picker Engineering Program 15 years ago, promising to bring more women-who are educated in the liberal arts along with their technical training-into the male-dominated field. The Summer 2015 Smith Alumnae Quarterly features engineering alumnae who are delivering on that promise.
The influential National Science Foundation Faculty Career Development Program has awarded Caitlyn Butler, class of 2004, $500,000 to pursue her pioneering research on special "Algal-Sludge Granules," which cut electricity consumption in half, while also cleansing water.
