12th Annual RIT Society of Women Engineers is hosting "SWE Overnight"
Thursday, February 9th and Friday, February 10th, 2012

SWE Overnight is a shadow program at Rochester Institute of Technology for female high school juniors. This program offers participants the opportunity to explore various engineering fields through hands-on workshops and interaction with current RIT engineering students as well as professors. A mentoring relationship can also be developed through our panel discussion and mentoring lunch, which helps facilitate the transition from high school to college. Our goal is to motivate and inspire young women to pursue a career in engineering.


When: February 9th and 10th 2012
Where: RIT campus
Cost: $100 per student

Registration for this event is now full. If you would like to be placed on our waiting list please email your name and contact information to If a spot opens up you will be contacted.

Note: Girls will be sleeping on the floor so they will need to bring their own blankets and pillow. Mats will be provided but you are welcome to also bring your own.
