Monthly Meetings

The UW-Platteville Chapter of SWE holds monthly chapter meetings to discuss activities, listen to guest speakers, and participate in company tours. Watch your e-mail for the SWEekly and mailbox for reminders and locations.


For all SWE social activities, meet in the Women in EMS Mentor Center. This is also where the SWE office is located. The SWE Chapter is active in Homecoming, Engineering Expo, Women in EMS Career Days, and other university/college sponsored events. The Chapter enjoys collaborating with other student groups and providing outreach to elementary, middle, and high school students.


Many of the SWE members connect on a daily basis through interaction in the Women in EMS Mentor Center. It is also used as a group and individual study area for anyone looking for a place to study.
