Mission

To stimulate women to achieve their full potential in careers as leaders and engineers, expand the image of the engineering profession, and demonstrate the value of diversity.

Region H Conference

The Society of Women Engineers at UW-Platteville will host the Region H Conference in 2016. This conference will bring over 700 women engineers, both collegiates and professionals, to our campus to celebrate "M" Powering Women.

The conference will be held on February 26th-28th, 2016. If you are interested in sponsoring, either as a company or individual, the documents detailing these options are linked to this page down below. If you are interested in pledging to sponsor us and have any questions regarding the conference, please contact Tammy Salmon-Stephens at salmont@uwplatt.edu.

Monthly Meetings

The UW-Platteville section of SWE holds monthly section 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.

Involvement

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

Networking

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.
