Society of Women Engineers (SWE)

Society of Women Engineers (SWE Logo image)



The Society of Women Engineers was founded in 1950 by women engineering students and professionals who sought to support women in engineering as well as to encourage young women to pursue and excel in the male-dominated field. Although membership has grown from 61 founding members in 1950 to more than 30,000 members in 2017, women remain a minority in the engineering and technology fields and SWE continues its mission to support and promote practicing and aspiring women engineers.
