Two female students

Community Champion Jannie Wu supports COFFEE student club

As an electrical and computer engineering alumna, Jannie Wu understands the opportunities and challenges of pursuing an engineering degree at UC Davis. Wu has been a champion in supporting student engineers and exploring ways to encourage more females to pursue a career in electrical engineering.

In 2003, the Wu Family Foundation Scholarship was established by Wu to provide financial support to College of Engineering first-year undergraduates with financial needs.

When Wu recently learned of the Club of Future Female Electrical Engineers (COFFEE), she felt an immediate connection to their mission. To show her support, Wu surprised its members with pizza for their first COFFEE meeting of the 2021-22 academic year.
