WHO WE ARE
We aspire and advance female engineers to achieve their personal and professional goals.
At the core of everything UT SWE does is our mission to build a community that empowers women engineering students. With our membership of students spanning all engineering disciplines, we hope that each member can find in SWE a community of friends, a professional network, and a wealth of resources to help them achieve their full potentials as engineers and leaders. The university experience should not be confined to the classroom. As our incredibly strong team shows, what makes SWE special is the amount of opportunities it provides for students to develop their skills and contribute to the organization, fostering a positive and inclusive environment. SWE provides collegiate members valuable access to a unique set of resources that sets the stage for a successful career and the opportunity to inspire future generations and have fun!
For more than six decades, the Society of Women Engineers has given women engineers a unique place and voice within the engineering industry. Our vision works towards a world with gender parity and equality in engineering and technology. We are centered around a passion for our members’ success and continue to evolve with the challenges and opportunities reflected in today’s exciting engineering and technology specialties. The mission of SWE is to empower women to achieve full potential in careers as engineers and leaders, expand the image of the engineering and technology professions as a positive force in improving the quality of life, and demonstrate the value of diversity and inclusion.
