Become Part of the Society of Women Engineers in SWENext

 

The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) is an organization that supports and encourages women in their pursuit of engineering. Becoming a part of a professional society like SWE is an important part of developing into an engineer, and many young women join a collegiate section as soon as they start studying for an engineering degree in college. But what can students do if they aren't ready for college but want to be a part of the SWE community? SWENext is a way to become part of the Society of Women Engineers for students up to the age of 18.

SWENext is a unique program that provides young girls, parents and educators with the tools they need to increase their understanding of the engineering field, and it is a great way to establish engagement with engineering early on. As a SWENext member you'll be notified of relevant events, learn about scholarships, meet practicing women engineers, work on cool projects, participate in contests, and more. You may even decide to join the SWENext Council and shape the future of SWE for girls around the country.

What you need to know:

  • Joining is free.
  • Any girl 13 or older may join SWENext.
  • For those younger than 13, a parent will need to be the primary contact.
  • Parents of girls are encouraged to join regardless of the age of their daughter.

How to join:

If you are a student with an interest in creating the future become part of SWE and #BeThatEngineer!
