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 improving the quality of life, and demonstrates the value of diversity. (adopted 1986)
The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) is a non-profit educational and service organization of graduate engineers and women and men with equivalent engineering experience. SWE’s membership includes over 15,000 members in 87 sections and 285 student sections.
SWE originated when small groups of women engineers and engineering students began meeting independently in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington DC. Nearly 50 women from these groups came together on May 27, 1950 in New Jersey at Green Engineering Camp of the Cooper Union and formed the Society of Women Engineers.
