Society of Women Engineers
Founding Collegiate Section
The Drexel University Section of the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) started with just a handful of driven young women working to establish the Society’s first collegiate section more than seventy five years ago.
Today, we stand at more than 120 Society members, governed by 24 board members serving on eight committees. This structure reflects not only the advancement of women in the workplace, but that of the Drexel engineering curriculum and the Drexel co-operative education program. Capitalizing on the value of all three elements, Drexel SWE consistently strives to prepare members to be well-rounded, technically proficient engineering leaders of an innovative world. We are proud to have won Outstanding Collegiate Section Gold for 4 years in a row, from 2013 to 2016, and the Gold Level Mission Award for a Collegiate Section in both 2018 and 2019.
The Society of Women Engineer’s mission statement is to empower women to achieve their full potential in careers as engineers and leaders; expand the image of the engineering and technology professions as a positive force in improving the quality of life, and demonstrate the value of diversity and inclusion.
