The Society of Women Engineers is a non-profit educational and service organization that empowers women to aspire to careers in engineering and thrive as leaders in society.


As part of the Region E (Mid-Atlantic) section of SWE, the student chapter here at Columbia University is a very well-known organization throughout the campus. Being that we have undergraduate students in the fields of Engineering, Physics, Computer Science, Mathematics, and Chemistry allows for a very diverse environment.


We are extremely proud to have had the opportunity to host the previous conference, such as the 2012 SWE Region E Mid-Atlantic Conferenceas, and had the chance to present the fruitful opportunities available for women engineers at Columbia University and in New York City.


is to promote and encourage women in the Engineering and Sciences field and to emphasize the importance of higher education as well as maintaining perseverance in pursuing leadership and professional distinction among society.
