Society of Women Engineers (SWE)

Society of Women Engineers (S.W.E. Logo image)



The Society of Women Engineers was founded in 1950 by women engineering students and professionals who sought to support women in engineering as well as to encourage young women to pursue and excel in the male-dominated field. Although membership has swelled from 61 founding members in 1950 to more than 17,000 members in 2008, women remain a minority in the engineering and technology fields and SWE continues its mission to support and promote practicing and aspiring women engineers.

The SWE quick link returns all content that has been tagged SWE, which currently contains collection abstracts, audio files and images. Please note the pager at the bottom of this page. Your main contact at the Reuther is Troy Eller - Society of Women Engineers Archivist (SWE).
