Princeton SWE is dedicated to 1) promoting a sense of community among B.S.E. students, professors, and alumnae of Princeton and 2) introducing younger girls to the various opportunities offered by studying engineering. Membership in SWE is open to all Princeton students, irrespective of gender.
We hold study breaks and other social events throughout the year for interested students. Our calendar also includes various community and industry outreach opportunities.
Traditionally, engineering has been thought of as being predominantly male. Although this trend is reversing, in general, engineering has much greater salary parity between men and women than most other fields. Engineers are at the forefront of the development of the technology that drives our society forward. It is our aim to continue to promote these fields to women who might not have considered studying them, and to offer support to the women who do.
