The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Society of Women Engineers focuses on efforts that encourage women to enter the engineering profession. These efforts include career guidance, education through conferences, scholarships and awards. UNL-SWE serves as a center of information for women in engineering as well as a support network to help each of our members attain the highest level of educational, personal, and professional achievement possible.
The Society of Women Engineers (SWE), founded in 1950, is a not-for-profit educational and service organization. SWE is the driving force that establishes engineering as a highly desirable career aspiration for women. SWE empowers women to succeed and advance in those aspirations and be recognized for their life-changing contributions and achievements as engineers and leaders.
