Welcome to SU SWE! Come join us at a meeting!

SU SWE participates in community outreach such as volunteering at Ronald McDonald House, sponsors workshops and networking events with women engineers from local industry on topics such as “a day in the life of an engineer”, “getting your first job”, and “resume writing and interviewing skills” and organizes social events.

The SWE Mission:  Stimulate women to achieve full potential in careers as engineers and leaders by:
