The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) is a nationally recognized professional, educational, non-profit, and service organization dedicated to promoting interest in and encouraging women to pursue the fields of science and engineering.


The Northwestern University SWE chapter, founded in 1976, includes graduate and undergraduate female and male engineers interested in making a change both on and off the campus. Through various hosted events, SWE members build relationships and networks with other female engineers and scientists, developing their skills in leadership, problem-solving, and interpersonal relationships.


Each quarter, the secretary publishes 1-2 newsletters to highlight Section features, major events, and share interesting facts about current members.
