Society of Women Engineers
The Society of Women Engineers is a national organization that inspires women to succeed in engineering fields, and to be recognized for their accomplishments. Founded in 1950, SWE offers a diverse array of training and development programs, networking opportunities, scholarships, outreach and advocacy activities, and more. For more about the national organization of SWE, visit the National Society of Women Engineers website.
Rochester Institute of Technology has a SWE student section. Unlike WE@RIT, the SWE section is a student-run club that is membership-based and affiliated with a national professional organization. A number of programs (as well as volunteering opportunities) are offered through this organization. For more information about the RIT student section, visit the official RIT Society of Women Engineers website.
RIT SWE hosts an annual overnight program for female high school juniors to learn more about engineering. For more information about SWE Overnight and to find out how to register, click here.
