WHAT WE DO
What are you doing Tuesdays from 7-8 PM? Just finished with classes for the day? Join the biweekly SWE family gathering to hang out with that one person you see in all your classes but never talked to, to meet with corporate partners in a setting much less intimidating than EXPO, or to meet new SWeople with our fun icebreakers. Learn from a host of experienced people from a variety of different fields and keep up to date with everything happening in SWE at the same time. We’ll even provide the food!
Our Professional Development events aim to give our members the opportunity to strengthen relationships with the Graduate SWE chapter and female professors on campus, while also providing exposure to non-conventional occupations outside of engineering. Specific events include Brown Bags, Professor Panels, and much more!
The Society of Women Engineers annual National Conference is the largest conference for women in engineering and technology. These conferences are opportunities for UT SWE to interact with collegiate and professional engineers from all around the world, in all stages of their careers. Attendees leave the three-day conference with the understanding of the mission of SWE and take-aways of new ideas and knowledge by participating in hands-on workshops. Additionally, they engage with recruiters at the SWE Career Fair which boasts over 175 diverse exhibitors, including many companies who do not attend UT's Fall or Spring EXPO's. Many UT SWE members have received internship and full-time offers from successful networking and interviewing.
This year, SWE's WE20 National Conference will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana from November 5-7. Visit their WE20 website to learn more information.
