Society of Women Engineers
The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) is a student organization. It is a campus section of the national society.
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.
The Society of Women Engineers at UW-Platteville will host the Region H Conference in 2016. This conference will bring over 700 women, both collegiates and professionals, to our campus to celebrate "M" Powering Women.
The conference will be held on February 26th-28th, 2016. Individual and company sponsorships are available. If you are interested in pledging a sponsorship, you can fill out the pledge form and send to UW-Platteville. Sponsorships may be submitted electronically via credit card here. Be sure to choose the "other scholarships and funds" option and write SWE Region H Conference on the web form. Questions about sponsorships can be directed to Tammy Salmon-Stephens (email@example.com) or Katie Martin (firstname.lastname@example.org). Payment questions should be directed to Katie.
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.
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.
