About SWE

SWE is a non-profit educational service organization dedicated to making known the need for women engineers and encouraging young women to consider an engineering education. The organization's four objectives are as relevant today as they were more than 50 years ago:

  • To inform young women, their parents, counselors, and the public in general of the qualifications and achievements of women engineers and the opportunities open to them.
  • To assist women engineers in readying themselves for a return to active work after temporary retirement.
  • To serve as a center of information on women in engineering.
  • To encourage women engineers to attain high levels of educational and professional achievement.

SWE's Mission Statement

The Society of Women Engineers stimulates women to achieve full potential in careers as engineers and leaders, expands the image of the engineering profession as a positive force in the quality of life, and demonstrates the value of diversity.
