About Us - National SWE

What is SWE?

The Society of Women Engineers (SWE), founded in 1950, is a not-for-profit educational and service organization. SWE is the driving force that establishes engineering as a highly desirable career aspiration for women. SWE empowers women to succeed and advance in those aspirations and be recognized for their life-changing contributions and achievements as engineers and leaders.

What are SWE's goals?

The mission of National SWE is to:

  • Stimulate women to achieve full potential in careers as engineers and leaders,
  • Expand the image of the engineering profession as a positive force in improving the quality of life, and
  • Demonstrate the value of diversity.
