On January 20, 2017, Hanyang University (HYU) held the first ever Female Engineer Homecoming Day event. This event was for female undergraduate and graduate students from the College of Engineering. Students got the chance to interact with each other for personal and academic reasons. The event lasted for three hours (17:00 to 20:00) and was held on the 5th floor of the HYU alumni association building. 
A total of 51 people participated in the event, 33 of which were students, 9 graduates, 3 professors, and 6 staff members. The WE-UP Department posted pictures and more information about the event on their Facebook page for anyone who is interested in participating in the event next year.
The program included a session that provided information about graduate school advancement, mentor mentee matching, and a presentation that introduced the different career paths that a female engineer could follow.
This event was made possible by HYU’s WE-UP business. HYU’s WEUP business aims to foster talented female engineers. This has become crucially important, since recent data has shown an increasing percentage of women majoring in engineering at HYU. Women now account for 33% of the total number of new undergraduates. This is a drastic increase compared to 2010 when only 14% of undergraduates were women.
The WE-UP Department promoted the event through various social media outlets. They uploaded a notice onto the HYU site and created their own Facebook account. They provided information such as the date and location of the event, their target audience, and the benefits that could be earned from participating.
Most participants enjoyed the Female Engineer Homecoming Day and said that they hope to continue participating in it. The WE-UP Department is looking forward to making this an annual event that many HYU students can enjoy.
