    New Mentorship Program for Women Engineering Students ‘Very Valuable, Much Needed’

    May 5, 2016

    COLUMBUS, Ohio — Some things just don’t get covered in the classroom.

    That’s one reason why Gonul Kaletunc created a mentoring program for women engineering students at The Ohio State University.

    Although women make up 20 percent of engineering graduates, only 11 percent of the engineering workforce is female, said Kaletunc, professor of food engineering in Ohio State’s colleges of Engineering and Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences.
