Irma Wyman (1928-2015), Alumna and Pioneer of Women in Engineering, Passed Away

Irma Wyman (BSE EngMath 49) passed away on Tuesday, November 17, 2015. Irma was a pioneer in the field of computers, beginning with her work on some of the earliest programmable machines ever made. As the first female vice president at Honeywell, she knew success - but she also knew firsthand how rare she was to succeed in a field where women were scarce. She became a strong advocate for equal opportunity for women, and established the Irma M. Wyman Scholarship at the University of Michigan's Center for the Education of Women. The scholarship supports women in engineering, computer science, and related fields. Irma passed away on Tuesday, November 17, 2015. [Read more about Irma Wyman's work and experiences.] [Full Story]
