The Cornell Student Section of the Society of Women Engineers was charted on November 9, 1972. Since then, we have grown to be one of the largest student organizations on campus, with over 250 members. Membership for SWE is open to all (male and female) undergraduate and graduate students in engineering and technical fields. Each year, we run numerous programs and events to promote engineering, diversity, career and professional development, academic support, and pre-college education. These include many outreach programs in and around the Ithaca community, various social programs, dinners, luncheons, and over 100 company information sessions.
The Cornell Student Section of the Society of Women Engineers promotes women in Engineering by advocating the importance of diversity and by uniting resources to encourage academic, leadership, professional, and personal excellence for the entire Engineering community of Today and Tomorrow.
