SWE's main mission is centered around outreach. It is the biggest part of our club! We hold events at least 3 times a quarter if not more!
What is Outreach?
Outreach is about reaching out to younger girls (and boys) to encourage them to consider Engineering as their future career. We strive to set an example for young women especially, that engineering, although dominated by men, is a very fulfilling and achievable career. We often show this through different engineering projects that play on the girl's strengths and teach them about teamwork as well as the concepts behind engineering.
Upcoming Outreach Events
